SUCH MEN ARE DANGEROUS (1930)

$250.00

Vintage original 14 x 22″ (35 x 56 cm.) window card poster, USA. Warner Baxter, Catherine Dale Owen, Hedda Hopper, Bela Lugosi, dir: Kenneth Hawks; Fox Film Corporation. A rather obscure early talkie about a woman who marries a wealthy man for his money. He realizes this when she calls him ugly, fakes his own suicide, has his face changed (Bela Lugosi plays the plastic surgeon) and gains a new identity in order to take revenge on his wife. Because he is now handsome though, she actually falls in love with him and all ends happily. The title for the film is a quote from Shakespeare’s JULIUS CAESAR. Director Hawks (brother to Howard) and 9 crew members were killed in an air collision while traveling to their location shoot. Elinor Glyn was the celebrity writer of the day and anything with her name associated guaranteed and audience, as she is prominently mentioned on this poster with its jazz age graphics. Minor handling wear, several pinholes in border areas, otherwise clean, NEAR FINE.
