    Satan Met a Lady (Warner Brothers, 1936). Fine. Window Card (14" X 21").
    The second adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's popular novel, The Maltese Falcon, this version -- cast more in the light comedy vein of the popular Thin Man movies -- stars Warren William as Ted Shayne (standing in for Sam Spade), and Bette Davis as Valerie Purvis, both of whom find themselves caught up in a search for the fabled Horn of Roland. Although the details have been somewhat changed - the Caspar Gutman character is, in this version, played by the venerable Alison Skipworth, for example - this is still very much the story of The Maltese Falcon, and a key film for fans of the mystery/private detective genre. Paper from this movie is extremely scarce, with this being the only known copy of the window card, presented for only the second time at Heritage. This window card displays corner bumps and bends, minor surface scratches, and unobtrusive stains. Also apparent is mild toning, and some color fading, however due to the scarcity of this card the exact amount of color fading is unclear. The top edge of the imprint area has, what we believe to be a one inch trim. There is inked writing on the verso, as well as a couple of pieces of paper and archival tape. Fine.

    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
