    Description

    Desire (Paramount, 1936). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Cunning and beautiful, Marlene Dietrich is a seductive jewel thief who steals a valuable string of pearls in Paris, and uses vacationing automotive engineer Gary Cooper to unwittingly help her smuggle the goods into Spain. Of course, plans hit a snag when she can't recover the goods and emotions get involved. This rare one sheet is hard to resist, with its gorgeous portrait of two of Hollywood's greatest legends. Professional restoration has addressed chipping and tears in the borders and folds, pinholes in the borders and image area, and replaced part of the bottom left border. There was a tear from the upper border through Gary Cooper's credit and another extending through the left background next to Marlene Dietrich's image. The poster also had some pinholes in Cooper's image and vertical chipping and small tears in Dietrich's image. The linen has been trimmed to the border. Fine on Linen.
