BEHIND OFFICE DOORS (1931) with Mary Astor$300.00
Vintage original 11 x 14″ (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Mary Astor, Robert Ames, Ricardo Cortez, dir: Melville W. Brown, RKO. Wonderful Pre-Code image of Mary Astor and Robert Ames in a flirtatious moment in an office… Mary plays a secretary whose boss takes her for granted until rival executive Ricardo Cortez starts to pay attention to her. In the story, he offers her $50. Per week as secretary, for which she raises an eyebrow wondering what that may entail, since the average salary of a secretary at the time was $20. Plenty of “naughty” pre-code imagery in the left side border art. Stunning color. Card is virtually flawless. FINE.
