DescriptionRed Headed Woman (MGM, 1935). Spanish One Sheet (27.5" X 39").
As luck would have it, Irving Thalberg tossed F. Scott Fitzgerald's script for Red Headed Woman into the waste basket, and gave Anita Loos her first assignment under her new MGM contract. It was Loos who knew the femme fatale racket backwards and forwards. She could skirt the censorship code as no man ever could, with her clever and very feminine innuendos and delicate double entendres. This style fit Jean Harlow perfectly, and was directly responsible for one of Harlow's best films. The star is ravishing on this stone litho Spanish poster, which has retained its bright colors over the decades. It shows fold wear and separations, edge wear with small tears, creases, and chips in the left border. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
