    Description

    Scarface (United Artists, 1932). Fine. Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Paul Muni blazed a bullet-riddled path across the screen in Howard Hughes's highly acclaimed gangster classic. This card is from the film's first release in 1932 and does not display "The Shame of a Nation" that was later stamped on so many of the original cards under the film's title. The controversy caused by the film upon its release, and the claim that it glorified gangsters, forced the Hays Commission to require the "addendum" to the film's original title. This sensational, exceedingly rare, "unstamped" title card is highly prized. Professional restoration has addressed pinholes, surface wear, minor tears, and a few small chips in the right and lower borders. The verso, borders, and title have been airbrushed. The card still shows some toning and color fading.


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