20 Swedish Posters for 1930s Hollywood

Sky Hawk, 1929 (artist: Eric Rohman)

I found these posters as expired auction listings (this time at mighty timesink Heritage). I'm also working on a fourth post of work by Einar Nerman, so perhaps another all-Sweden week...

Many Swedish movie posters from this era must have played off of the original American ones, though I have the sense that the works featured here are original deco confections.
