    Description

    You're Telling Me (Paramount, 1934). Lobby Cards (3) (Approx. 11" X 14"). From the Collection of Frank Buxton, of which the sale's proceeds will benefit The San Francisco Silent Film Festival.
    W.C. Fields stars as a hapless inventor, whose luck never seems to be favorable, who tries to help his beloved daughter marry the man of her dreams, the son of a wealthy family. It's a domestic comedy, with the usual conflict between the classes and no one did it better than Fields. The portrait card has slight edge wear and foxing into the interior, and the "pugilistic" Fields card has pinholes and surface scuffing with a few scratches. The last card, with Fields in society, shows creases, mild tears, surface scuffs, and a few small corner chips. It also has a couple of pieces of archival tape and the verso, as well as a slight trim in the bottom border into the leasing text. Fine+.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
