DescriptionThe Flame of New Orleans (Universal, 1941). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Style C, partial Alberto Vargas Artwork.
Directed with the comic skills of Rene Clair, Marlene Dietrich portrays a woman with too many suitors, who must become two different women to take care of them all in this romantic hit from 1941. Dietrich was never more beautiful than this poster, with artwork in the lower half of the poster by the legendary pinup master Alberto Vargas. Before restoration, there were chips from all four corners, the most significant from the lower left. There was chipping from the lower horizontal fold and into the lower vertical fold above the name of Joe Pasternak.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
