4 Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Jumbo Lobby Cards (Learn More)

An American Tragedy, the 1931 Josef von Sternberg romantic love triangle murder courtroom lawyer legal melodrama ("Based upon the novel 'An American Tragedy' by Theodore Dreiser"; about a working class man with a working class girlfriend, but then he acquires a rich girlfriend, and it seems that he will have a wonderful life, but his first girlfriend turns up pregnant, and he is sorely tempted to do anything to get her out of the picture) starring Sylvia Sidney, Phillips Holmes, Frances Dee, Irving Pichel, Frederick Burton, and Charles Middleton. Note that this movie was re-made in 1951 under the title "A Place in the Sun", with Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor, and Shelley Winters in the lead roles. Note that Phillips Holmes had made an impression in some movies in the late 1920s. In 1931, he would get the lead in the first version of this movie, which made it seem like he would become a major star, but that didn't materialize. He had a major affair with Libby Holman, but that was certainly complicated, and when they broke up, she immediately married his brother! Oddly, years later, Holman would have another very complicated affair with Montgomery Clift, who played the same part in the remake of "An American Tragedy", re-titled "A Place in the Sun". Sadly, Holmes died in a plane crash in 1942. I am very surprised no one has made a movie about his life, or a joint movie about him and Libby Holman!
