Vintage original 11 x 14 in. US lobby card from the classic German-produced teens silent film drama, MADAME DUBARRY (US title: PASSION), released in the US in 1919 by First National Pictures and directed by Ernst Lubitsch.


The image features beautifully-rendered artwork depicting Madame DuBarry (Pola Negri) pleading with her executioner to give her one more day of life as they stand next to a guillotine at the time of her execution. It is in very good condition and has been professionally paper-backed with light restoration to address a vertical crease through the height of the card to the left of the credits and a vertical tear on the bottom left corner and light signs of wear along the first 4 in. of the top edge.
