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.

    I guess it shows that you can get Ann Dvorak memorabilia when you least expect it, I suppose…Right?

    It’s too bad that scene isn’t in the movie. It looks interesting!

    Esp since she’s wearing a bathrobe!

    You have no idea! Speaking of, just got the Wonder Bread ad. Thanks!

    I’m wondering if that’s a corpse Doug is toting around or just a drunk. I guess we’ll never know!

    I think what we can learn from this lobby card, it’s always wear a coat around your shoulders or a bathrobe when you’re carting around a drunk or a corpse.
