DescriptionThe Glass Key (Paramount, 1942). Fine+. Lobby Card (11" X 14").
Based on the novel by Dashiell Hammett, this is a story of political corruption in the big city, starring the incendiary team of Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake, who had burned up the screen in their previous picture, This Gun for Hire (1942), and would go on to make The Blue Dahlia (1946), another classic film noir. Few would disagree that the card offered here, featuring a sultry, smoldering image of Lake, is the best card in the set. Restoration has been done to address tears, pinholes, and creases. The borders and blue background have been airbrushed and there is some rippling to the card.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
