Paramount Pictures Original Scene Lobby Card (11x14) Very Fine Plus Condition

Paramount Original Scene Lobby Card (11x14) for the Stuart Heisler directed film noir THE GLASS KEY (1942). Politics and gangsters are mixed in about equal proportions in this well-regarded film based on a novel by Dashiell Hammett. Released on October 14, 1942, the film has remained a favorite of noir lovers and also of fans of the peek-a-boo blonde actress Veronica Lake. Alan Ladd and Brian Donlevy also starred. Directed by the workmanlike Stuart Heisler, the picture is successful at pulling at all the strings that make a good mystery - and the cinematography by Theodor Sparkuhl is dark and moody. The film won no awards of any consequence, but we give an award for "Best Beating", administered to Alan Ladd by the brute William Bendix. Perhaps the best thing about the film is the chemistry between Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake, a team that Paramount re-united seven times! This lobby card is one of the most treasured Veronica Lake scene cards -- and the condition is excellent. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions; this card is vintage, authentic, real.
