    Description

    The Devil is a Woman (Paramount, 1935). French Grande (47" X 63.25") Marcel Jeanne Artwork.
    Any paper from this title is extremely rare, especially foreign paper, and Heritage is proud to offer up this magnificent French grande for the very first time. A long standing muse of director Josef von Sternberg, Dietrich would team with him for the last time here, as a Spanish courtesan who lures military officers with her wiles. Lionel Atwill turns in one of his best non-horror performances, and this film left no doubt that Dietrich was, in fact, Hollywood's ultimate femme fatale. However, the film itself was withdrawn from release after protests by the Spanish government, and not shown again until many years later. A eye-catching piece for sure, the colors practically burst off of this poster's beautiful illustration, courtesy of talented French artist Marcel Jeanne. There has been touchup to the folds and a small chip in the lower left corner. Mild toning in the folds is still visible. Very Fine- on Linen.
