Four (4) vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby cards, USA. Fay Wray, George Bancroft, Richard Arlen, Tully Marshall, dir: Joseph von Sternberg; Paramount. Superb card from a film which is considered to be one of the first in the film-noir genre. A top star of the time, George Bancroft was nominated for the Academy Award as Best Actor for this film. Story of a criminal named Thunderbolt (Bancroft) who is imprisoned and facing execution. An innocent man, who has been framed named Bob Morgan (Arlen) is placed in the cell next to Thunderbolt. Unknowing of the relationship, Bob has fallen in love with Thunderbolt's girl (Wray) while on the outside. Thunderbolt plots to stop his own execution long enough to kill Bob. A revolutionary early sound film which made use of asynchronous dialogue long before this became standard, and made by the highly regarded director of world cinema Joseph von Sternberg. Art direction was by Hans Drier. The script was by Charles and Jules Furthman and Herman J. Mankiewicz, Joseph L. Mankiewicz and von Sternberg wrote the dialogue. Bancroft and Wray appear in three of the cards. Wray, Arlen and another actor are in the fourth. Bancroft was nominated for the Academy Award as Best Actor. Stunning color and deco title treatments. One of the cards was illustrated in the famous reference book, FOYER PLEASURES. One of them is paper-backed, all have professional touch up to blank margins, NEAR VERY GOOD.
