    Description

    The Scarlet Empress (Paramount, 1934). Window Card (14" X 22").
    In this wildly imaginative biopic directed by Josef von Sternberg, Marlene Dietrich is Catherine the Great, who usurps power from the Grand Duke Peter of Russia (Sam Jaffe). This gorgeous window card, the first Heritage has ever sold, Dietrich looks every inch the seductive yet powerful Queen. Touchup has been applied to the borders, imprint area, and the background of the upper text. Paper loss along the left border and lower half of the interior has been beautifully replaced with skillful restoration. Good/Very Good on Cardstock.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
