Original Paramount Pictures One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Style B Fine Plus Condition Restored

Paramount Pictures Original One-Sheet Poster (27x41), linen-backed, for the 1924 film THE ENEMY SEX, directed by James Cruze. The poster is an absolutely stunning image of Betty Compson at the apogee of her career at Paramount and is one that we have not seen at auction. Compson plays a chorus girl who is invited to a party where she is the object of fascination with several millionaires and tycoons who want to.. well, you know ... become her good friend. But Compson has spunk and some resources of her own and she decides she prefers to bring love and restoration to an alcoholic played by Percy Marmont. If this is not the usual path for attractive young women in the twenties, it matters little to the filmmakers. Compson is shown applying her lipstick. Sexy enough!! The neutral gray background is unusual for posters of this era. Just great design all the way around and beautiful stone lithography from Paramount. This is a style B one-sheet, which indicates that there was at least one alternative one-sheet. But the style B poster is usually scarcer. Condition is fine plus, with some signs of general wear and restored on linen. There is a bit of smudging in the border area, but all in all this one is ready to frame. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic one-sheet poster for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
