DescriptionSecret Agent (Gaumont, 1936). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
During World War One, three British spies, a couple pretending to be married (John Gielgud and Madeleine Carroll) and their accomplice (Peter Lorre), are sent to Switzerland to find and kill a double agent. This Hitchcock masterpiece has long been considered an underappreciated classic, and is one of the first of his thrilling espionage films to hit the screen. Posters for this picture remain rare, and this lovely card features the lovely Madeleine Carroll with costar Robert Young. It shows light edge wear, slightly rounded corners, and mild creases. It also has unobtrusive stains and smudges, as well as a smudge in Madeleine Carroll's dress. Very Fine-.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
