    Description

    Public Enemy, The (Warner Brothers, 1931). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). James Cagney was a bit player until he was cast as the lead Tom Powers in "The Public Enemy". It was his snappy patter, and wisecracking grin that earned him the title shot at Hollywood history. The film exploited the lives of gangsters like Al Capone who rose to power in the early 1930's and shocked the public into an awareness of the organized crime that ran bootleg alcohol during prohibition. This is one of the most important films made during pre-code Hollywood and featured Jean Harlow, Ed Woods and Joan Blondell. This is one of only two lobby cards from the entire set with James Cagney and Jean Harlow pictured together. You can look for years before you ever get a chance at another lobby from this seminal classic so don't pass up this lot. Very Fine/Near Mint.
