The Face on the Barroom Floor, the 1932 Bertram Bracken drinking alcoholism melodrama ("The greatest fight in the history of the screen!"; "Heart throbs and gangsters! Divine tenderness and bootleggers! Oh, what a picture!"; "For once, the 'wets' and 'drys' agree! All pronounce it the screen's greatest accomplishment!"; "From the Hallowed Sanctity of a Happy Home - to the Curse of the Demon Rum."; "With Hollywood's greatest players"; "Story by - Aubrey Kennedy"; about a husband and wife where the husband is a successful banker, but he never drinks because there is a family history of alcoholism, but then his wife insists he start drinking occasionally to "be social", and before long, he is a raving alcoholic, who loses everything he has) starring Dulcie Cooper, Bramwell Fletcher, Walter Miller, Maurice Black, Eddie Fetherston, Alice Ward, Phillips Smalley, "and a Score of Others". Note that this movie was one of the very first talking movies against alcohol and the problems it caused, having been made just shortly after Prohibition's repeal. It bears a marked similarity to both "The Lost Weekend" and "The Days of Wine and Roses".

Important Added Info: Note that first release U.S. movie posters from this 1932 movie are beyond rare! We have NEVER sold even one U.S. movie poster of any kind prior to auctioning this great one-sheet (we had a few lobby cards and a herald, but never any U.S. poster).

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had small paper loss at the bottom two crossfolds and pretty minor fold and border wear. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was backed with virtually no restoration, and no excess linen, and there are now some tiny tears in the right border and tiny paper loss in the top right corner, but overall, the poster displays well just as it is.
