Description

    Spies (MGM, 1928). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Fritz Lang, one of Germany's most celebrated directors, whose works included Metropolis, M, and Dr. Mabuse's Testament before fleeing the Nazi regime to come to America to work, directed this film, right after Metropolis. Considered by many to be one of Lang's great German masterpieces, Spies is the forerunner of every espionage thriller. It is thought by many that Ian Fleming must have been familiar with this film as so many elements were later used in his classic James Bond stories, such as the handsome hero called Agent 326, and a sinister villain in a wheelchair whose accomplice is a beautiful woman who falls in love with the hero. There are exciting action sequences, and chases involving a crashing train and motorcycles. This is the ultimate pre-James Bond, Bond film. Offered here is one of the extremely rare original lobby cards. There are pinholes in the borders, small corner bends, one tiny corner chip in the bottom left corner, and tanning on the borders. Fine/Very Fine.
