SHANGHAI EXPRESS EXQUISITE MARLENE DIETRICH BELGIAN POSTER (1932)
Vintage original 23 x 29 ¾” (57 x 74) poster, Belgian. Marlene Dietrich, Clive Brook, Anna May Wong, Warner Oland, dir: Josef von Sternberg. Paramount. A really beautiful portrait of Marlene Dietrich in the role of Shanghai Lil enhances this rare poster. A most lovely and sensual image of Dietrich. The film is a wonderful Josef von Sternberg opus set entirely on a train and explores how the passenger’s lives are interwoven and how they must band together when the train is taken by Chinese guerrillas. Poster is on a lightweight linen. There is no linen at the top and the poster may have been slightly trimmed at the top only. Very minor, if any fold touchup. A few small soil spots. Truly stunning color and lay out and superb portrait of Marlene Dietrich in one of her most famous roles. ABOUT FINE.
