20TH CENTURY, THE (1934)

Extremely rare card from this classic screwball comedy starring Carole Lombard and John Barrymore, and directed by Howard Hawks. Amongst those cards considered to be “holy grails” of 1930’s cinema. All are “Columbia Gloss” stock, which was a varnish-coating that contributed to a deluxe, fine-art effect. Even more remarkable considering their extreme rarity is the fact they are in extraordinary unrestored condition. Here Lombard looking brazenly sexual, rests against a fur chaise in a very sexy, very revealing dressing gown, showing plenty of cleavage as Barrymore looks romantically at her.
