Weekly Movie Poster Auction Format Change

Our Weekly Movie Poster auctions will close with a live auction on HA.com's proprietary platform, Heritage Live!, beginning with the auction that ends Sunday, April 13. Each lot will now be offered one at a time, in lot number order, in a live auction beginning at 8:00 PM CT; with live bidders on Heritage Live! competing with each other and with previously placed Internet bids. Bidders in our previous Signature auctions will recognize the format as it is the same platform utilized by live Internet bidders at the time of the auction sessions. There will be no change in how bidders place their secret maximum bids during the week the auction is open on the Heritage Auctions website. Once bidding on the Heritage website ends, 2 hours before the live session starts, bidders will still have the option to leave proxy bids through Heritage Live! All existing bids will compete with any live bidding during the Heritage Live! auction. Each lot will open, request live bids, and then close when the bidding is finished.

You will be able to get to the Heritage Live! bidding software from many pages on the website, including the home page, each lot page, the auction home page, MyBids, and MyTrackedLots. For more information about Heritage Live, please visit HA.com/live. If you have any questions regarding this exciting new development, please contact Grey Smith at 1-800-872-6467 x1367.

Description:
The Black Pirate (United Artists, 1926). One Sheet (27" X 41").
This classic silent swashbuckler is one of Douglas Fairbanks' most famous roles and certainly the most desirable film poster of his career. The film was shot entirely in an early two-strip Technicolor process, making it one of the only silent films shot in color, and was a major success for the star. Fairbanks' astonishing acrobatics are amazing stunts even by today's standards, including the most famous one, his riding down a sail on the edge of a knife, as well as the scene in which he cuts loose the corner of a billowing sail and then holds on as the wind carries him up off the deck of the ship and high into the rigging. It is hard to imagine a more beautiful stone litho image than this one in all of its unrestored beauty. There are pinholes in the borders and minor wear at the crossfolds. Otherwise, this poster is untouched and magnificent. Very Fine+.
