Description

    The Lawyer's Secret (Paramount, 1931). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    When young lawyer Drake Norris (Clive Brook) discovers that an innocent man (Richard Arlen) has been convicted of a capital crime actually committed by his client (Charles 'Buddy' Rogers), he must decide whether to tell what he knows, or to maintain the sanctity of client confidentiality. Complicating matters is the fact that the real killer is the brother of Norris's lovely fiancée (Fay Wray)!
    Although Fay Wray had an impressive filmography behind her by the time she made this picture, she had still not reached the height of fame she would attain just a few years later, after roles in such genre classics as The Most Dangerous Game (1932), The Bat (1933), The Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933), and, of course, King Kong (1933), in which she played the beauty who killed the beast. By the end of the 1930s, her career was waning, but Fray Wray will always be remembered by her legion of adoring fans as Hollywood's first - and some would insist best - scream queen. This very rare stone litho one sheet presents a powerful image of Brook and his co-stars, including Wray, Rogers, and Jean Arthur, who plays the girlfriend of the wrongly-convicted man. Prior to expert professional restoration, the poster displayed a chip in the bottom border, and small holes in the credits. As well, one inch of paper had been trimmed from the top border. After addressing these minor flaws, the poster looks as good as new, and is sure to be a welcome addition to any collection. From the Berwick Discovery. Fine+ on Linen.
