20TH CENTURY, THE (1934)

extremely rare cards from this classic screwball comedy starring Carole Lombard and John Barrymore, and directed by Howard Hawks. These are 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. Barrymore roughs up Carole Lombard. Lombard’s back is exposed in halter style gown, and in a classic Pre Code moment, the gown is nearly pulled off her.
