Owing to paper shortages during and after World War II, film posters could not be printed on this larger format paper used before the war. This size poster was therefore only used up to the beginning of the war, and discontinued thereafter.

Exceptionally rare. This poster has only surfaced a few times.

This drama was directed by George Fitzmaurice, and is broadly based on the life of Mata Hari, a Dutch exotic dancer and courtesan, who was executed for being a German spy during World War I. This was the most successful role for Greta Garbo who plays the title role.
