Smashing The Vice Trust (1937) Original Grindhouse Poster SOLD AP425

In beautiful condition, mounted on canvas.

One of the early “grindhouse”, or “exploitation” movies… This poster is a classic of the genre. The story? A gang boss sees a new way to make money–kidnapping high school girls and forcing them to work in the brothels he owns. From the poster it’s clear that this Poverty Row production didn’t “star” anyone, but let’s acknowledge the more-than-game actors that brought these tawdry tales to life and who are now acknowledged deities of the camp Olympus: Willy Costello, Veola Vonn, Augusta Anderson et al.

You will already have noticed that the poster is just beautiful as well.

Price on request.
