Description

    The American Venus (Paramount, 1926). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Much has been written about the iconic Louise Brooks and the importance of her personal stamp on the 1920s in New York and Hollywood. This seldom seen lobby card is from her second film, in 1926, in which she played Miss Bayport in an Atlantic City beauty contest. Though this was a 'bit part,' Brooks was actually cheered aloud by audiences when she walked onto the screen in this costume, and was singled out by newspaper and magazine critics. This film was so popular, it toured the U.S. for two years. Little wonder she was able to inspire a long-running cartoon strip, Dixie Dugan, a Broadway show, Show Girl, and the Paparazzi to become the fourth most written about female star in Hollywood by 1927. There has been minimal professional airbrush for minor pinholes, light foxing, and a stain in the top left and right fields. Fine/Very Fine.

    Several people contacted me who felt similarly about the way the auction was handled. At this point in my career I'm much more concerned with the respectful professionalism in all forms when it comes to my life's work. I truly appreciate your efforts in t
