Lobby Card for Temptation

Smithsonian Institution,


A lobby card for the 1935 film "Temptation". In the top left corner in red text reads "Oscar Micheaux". Below that in blue it reads "Presents/ A Great colored cast in". Below the writing is a picture bordered in red. Starting to the left of the picture is a man in a white shirt with his sleeves rolled up and an unbuttoned brown vest over it with matching brown slacks. He is wearing a double colored sock tie and looking to his left. Behind him and to the right is a shorter man with a full brown suit, dark tie, and brown hat looking in the direction of the first man. To the right of the second man is a third man who is taller than the other two men depicted. He is wearing a dark blue shirt with a pocket square and a tie. He appears to be looking and pointing at the first man described. To the right of the picture bordered in red is a picture of a woman in a slightly transparent dress that reveals her shoulders and starts at her arms and chest. Her left hand is over her right breast as she looks up and to her right. Below both pictures, text outlined in green it reads "Temptation Distributed by/ Micheaux Pictures Corporation/ New York City." On the back of the lobby card, "1940" is written in red.
