Is there anyone who can resist her secret and deadly seduction? Experience Catherine Tramell’s secret and irresistible whisper that is sharper than ice, making what you already know irrelevant and powerless.
“What are you gonna do? Charge me with smoking?“
– Catherine Tramell
She is mysterious and audacious, with an irresistibly sensual and glamorous beauty…boasting of sexual attraction and danger. BLITZWAY and Bluefin are pleased to present Sharon Stone from Basic Instinct. This unique and alluring rendering depicts the sexy icon and movie star of American cinema and is sure to be a centerpiece of any ardent fan’s collection.
Stone portrayed Catherine Tramell, the heinous and atrocious femme fatale from the acclaimed 1992 neo-noir crime thriller that was directed by Paul Verhoeven that also starred Michael Douglas. BLITZWAY presents the sultry actress as she appeared in one of the film’s most famous scenes – a tense and memorable police interrogation. Collectors will appreciate Stone’s meticulously sculpted facial expression and crossed legs that complement her body’s expression of dignity, confidence and poise.
BLITZWAY utilized new facial printing technology to achieve an extremely high level of realism. The statue, which nearly 12½-inches tall, is further accented by a screen accurate costume constructed of special fabrics to portray her dress’s unmistakable silhouette and realistic wrinkles along with a period correct chair and other realistic accessories that complete the setting and accent the atmosphere from the film’s notorious interrogation scene.
