Description

    Underworld (Paramount, 1927). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style B.
    This silent era jewel from director Josef von Sternberg is widely regarded as the forerunner of the modern American gangster movie. George Bancroft stars as a crime kingpin who battles a rival gang lord (Fred Kohler) during the Prohibition Era for control of the city. Clive Brook and Evelyn Brent co-star. The style B half sheet offered here is quite rare, and a first time offer from Heritage. Wonderfully illustrated, the piece has been restored to address light stains in the left border, and tear in the bottom left credits. A small tear in the bottom border is still visible, put the poster shows nicely. Rolled, Fine+.
