Collection Spotlight: “Love is a Racket” Lobby Card
Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 81
This is one of those items I have owned for so long, that I sometimes forget how cool it is. I purchased this Love is a Racket lobby card in 2002 at the Hollywood Collector’s Show, formerly held at the Beverly Garland Holiday Inn in Studio City. I was in one of the dealer rooms, contemplating if I wanted to spend $50 on some 1970s German Scarface poster, when my friend Darin ran in from one of the other dealer rooms and stopped me. He then reached into the bag and pulled out this beauty. It was also 50 bucks and he just bought it, knowing it was a no-brainer for me.
This scene isn’t actually in the movie, but who cares? It’s gorgeous. It’s Ann Dvorak. It’s from 1932.
Sorry about the poor photo. I really need to go back and rescan/photograph everything I originally did back in 2002.
