Description

    Private Detective 62 (Warner Brothers, 1933). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Directed by Michael Curtiz in this thriller, William Powell plays a washed-up French diplomat who finds has to find new work, and joins a detective agency. While there, he finds himself up against gangsters and a double-crossing partner who tries to convince him into going crooked in this pre-code era film. During the early 1930s, Powell would find a steady stream of roles as a detective (including the Philo Vance series and the Thin Man series) but this was one of his first that led directly to those other films. This hard to find title lobby card had one pinhole near Powell's hand, light edge toning, and minor stains in the bottom border. There was restoration work to address a bit of penciling on the forehead of Powell and a numeral in the upper left corner. The work was done very well and all traces of the writing are now gone. Fine/Very Fine.
