At Long Last, A “Scarface” Lobby Card to Call My Own
Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 110
Over the years, I have amassed a decent collection of memorabilia from Ann Dvorak films, mainly because most of her titles are not particularly collectible, so there’s been virtually no competition. Scarface is on one of those rare Ann-D films that commands a high price tag, so I don’t have much from it except for still photographs.
My Scarface memorabilia dry-spell is now coming to an end with the purchase of this lobby card. I won it on eBay a couple of days ago. Maybe I shouldn’t jinx it, because it has not yet arrived in the mail but I am pretty excited about it. Sure, it’s trimmed, mounted on craft paper, and may or may not be from a 1930s reissue, but for 27 bucks, I’ll take it. Lobby cards from Scarface usually go for a few hundred and can run into the thousands, so this is a deal even if it is in lousy condition.
