Description

    The Sphinx (Monogram, 1933). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Lionel Atwill is Jerome Breen, a wealthy philanthropist placed at the scene of a brutal murder. The prosecution wants to prove he spoke with someone before the savage crime, but it turns out Breen has been a mute since birth when his vocal chords were severed. Upon his release, more murders occur, prompting an investigation by a sleuthing reporter who discovers Breen's terrible secret. The film was later remade as The Phantom Killer, with John Hamilton. Offered here is a magnificent, bold stone litho one sheet featuring Atwill. Prior to restoration, the poster had chips in the borders. The borders have been airbrushed, and touch-up work has been done to the folds. Fine+ on Linen.
