SHANGHAI EXPRESS (1932) Belgian poster
Vintage original 23 x 29 ¾” (57 x 74 cm.) poster, Belgium. 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 mounted on 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 layout and superb portrait of Dietrich in one of her most famous roles, ABOUT FINE.
