    Description

    The Canary Murder Case (Paramount, 1929). Fine. Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Louise Brooks' Hollywood swan song was this crime drama featuring William Powell as ace detective Philo Vance. Shot as a silent film, it was redubbed to include sound. Brooks was in Germany filming two films which would become classics and make her internationally famous. Paramount called her back to voice her dialogue but she refused. Offered here is what has to be the very best scene card of Brooks, depicted in all her beauty as a showgirl "canary." Restoration has been applied to address partially trimmed borders (not into the imprint area), vertical tears and creasing on the left side, and two vertical tears on the right side. Now the card displays extraordinarily well.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
