LADY EVE, THE (1941)
Vintage original 11 x 14″ (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Barbara Stanwyck, Henry Fonda, Charles Coburn, William Demarest, Eugene Pallette, Eric Blore, dir: Preston Sturges; Paramount. One of the top comedies of the 1940s. In the story, Stanwyck, a card shark, and Fonda, an anthropologist, meet on board a luxury liner and fall in love while she and her cohorts are robbing him. He finds out and rejects her. Tracking him down, she makes a play for him, impersonating an English noble lady.
In this card, Stanwyck as the sophisticated Lady Eve seduces Fonda, the apple a prop. There are two pinholes each at the top left and right corners and a single pinhole at mid top margin and at bottom right and left corners. There is a bit of soil at the top left margin which goes a bit into the background of the card. Vibrant color. NEAR FINE.
