QUEEN CHRISTINA (1933) Lobby card$850.00
Vintage original 11 x 14″ (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Greta Garbo, John Gilbert, Ian Keith, Lewis Stone, Elizabeth Young, C. Aubrey Smith, Reginald Owen, Cora Sue Collins, dir: Rouben Mamoulian; MGM.
The pet project of Greta Garbo, who came out of a year of self-imposed exile after refusing the poor scripts that MGM was attempting to saddle her with, to play the historic Queen of Sweden. Loyal and bound to her country when she experiences romance, she decides to give up her throne to follow her heart.
This card depicts the scene in which she tells her people of her choice to abdicate. The card was once in an album, and there are light stains on back which do not show through at all, pinholes in outer image, one minor border chip, mended with archival paper, NEAR FINE.
