    Description

    The Canary Murder Case (Paramount, 1929). Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 39").
    Louise Brooks makes a smashing appearance as nightclub singer "The Canary" on this beautiful Swedish one sheet. William Powell plays Philo Vance, a famed detective called in to investigate her murder in this early "part-talkie" mystery film. The film proved to be Brooks' Hollywood undoing as she refused to return to voice her lines for the sound version, but this gambit also helped secure the starlet's image as a silent era icon. This dramatic stone litho poster is a first-time offer at Heritage and looks fantastic with only some slight edge wear with light creases and some minor tears. Folded, Very Fine+.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
