Description

    The Maltese Falcon (Warner Brothers, 1931). CGC Graded Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Not only is this lobby card from the first filming of The Maltese Falcon in exceptional condition, but is also one piece in a scarce complete set of original lobby cards. Heritage has the rare opportunity to present each of the eight cards individually, a rare opportunity that should excite any classic collector. A major difference between John Huston's famous classic and Roy Del Ruth's original adaptation is the general atmosphere of the two movies. While the 1941 version is renown for its suspense and film noir intensity, the 1931 film has a much lighter air. Never is this more apparent than at the movie's resolution, pictured here, where an arrested Bebe Daniels delivers a snippy farewell, "What a pity the detective agency doesn't have more men of your moral character, Mister Spade." Rather than take the route of her sorrowful 1941 counterpart, Mary Astor, this interpretation of Ms. Wonderly is a starkly different, almost playful character. Well preserved, this card receives the high grade of 9.4, Near Mint.


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