    China Seas (MGM, 1935). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). A great film with a wonderful cast, this was Clark Gable at his best, playing a dashing rogue, a role he would perfect a few years later with Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind. Here he plays Captain Alan Gaskell, a sea captain juggling two women: the refined and gracious Sybil Barclay (Rosalind Russell) and the coarse and earthy Dolly "China Doll" Portland (Jean Harlow). His "dangerous liaisons" threaten to cost him his sanity, his ship, and his very life. Offered here is a beautiful title card, which pictures Gable and Harlow, as well as noted character actor Wallace Beery, who plays Jamesy McArdle, Dolly's accomplice in her jealousy-driven plot against Gaskell. The card shows corner bends, and some paint touch-up in the title area. Additionally, there is some damage to each of the corners and a tear in the bottom border, all of which have been reinforced with tape on the verso. Nevertheless, this is an extremely attractive card, one that you will be proud to own. Fine-.
