    Description

    The Man Who Laughs Trade Magazine Article (1928). A four-page insert from a film trade magazine, spotlighting the silent film starring Conrad Veidt and Mary Philban, released by Universal in April, 1928, and based on Victor Hugo's novel of a young man who was disfigured as a child. The page one image of Veidt in costume was said to be the inspiration for The Joker, who first appeared in Batman #1 (1940). The four-page section was carefully lifted from the trade magazine without harm, leaving only staple holes; folded size is 8" x 10.5", matted to an overall size of 12" x 14.5". Fine condition.
