Description

    The Bitter Tea of General Yen (Columbia, 1933). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    The Bitter Tea of General Yen was one of the last pre-Code films that Barbara Stanwyck would make before the Hays commission came to tame Hollywood. In this picture from director Frank Capra, Stanwyck's character falls for a Chinese warlord during a rebellion against the British Empire. The subject matter (of inter-racial relations) was a bit much for a lot of the American public at the time. Paper on this title has always been very scarce, in part due to the fact that many theatres refused to play the picture. Nevertheless, this remains one of Stanwyck's most important and best roles. This beautiful closeup lobby card has touchup to a few pinholes, small tears and creases in the borders, and corner chips. Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
