    Description

    Professional Sweetheart (RKO, 1933). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Filled with moral irreverence, a scandalous plot, and good helping of sarcastic social commentary, Professional Sweetheart is a film that wouldn't have seen the light of day had it been produced just one year later, when the enforcement of the Production Code was in full swing. The picture takes advantage of the lax national censorship standards to the fullest extent, heartily endorsing the adage of "sex sells" when jazz baby Ginger Rogers strips down to her unmentionables a total of three times in seventy-two minutes. A great image with a clever radio-themed composition, this is the first piece of paper Heritage has ever offered for this raunchy pre-Code romp. In far better shape than its age would suggest, the poster only shows crossfold separations, a few tiny tears in the right border, and some light smudges in the borders. There are soft vertical folds from when the poster was originally distributed. Folded, Very Fine.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
