The Last Flight (First National, 1931). Very Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27.5" X 41") Style B. From the Mike Kaplan Collection. Richard Barthelmess, one of the screen's classic silent actors, made a successful transition to sound with this picture that took a psychological look at the effects of war on returning pilots. William Dieterle directs this early "lost generation" tale of four military buddies roaming Europe, finding tragedy and misadventure after World War I. Offered only once before over a decade ago, this stone litho one sheet has had touchup applied to fold wear and separations, pinholes, and a few minor chips and tears. There are some unaddressed stains still visible, and the linen has been trimmed to the borders.
