    Description

    Submarine (Columbia, 1928). Sound Version One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Director Frank Capra had been making films for a decade, mostly comedies with Hal Roach, Mack Sennett, and Harry Langdon, when he moved to Columbia and took on this silent underwater drama. Stars Jack Holt and Dorothy Revier's marital bliss is threatened by Holt's Navy buddy, Ralph Graves, who falls for Revier. When Graves is trapped in a submarine, diver Holt is enlisted in the rescue effort and must put aside his jealousy. With actual underwater scenes and a gripping screenplay, this adventure film was a big success for Capra, one of many that helped to grow the fledgling Columbia Pictures. The picture was shot as a silent film but, since sound was making tremendous headway at this time, sound effects were added to increase the box office appeal. This one sheet is the alternate "sound" version. It had small tears in the right border and one in the top border going into the field, chipping in the bottom crossfold, and fold wear. There was a tape lift with small surface paper loss in the lower left tagline area. Restoration has addressed some of these issues. An important early film, this rare poster is not to be missed! Fine+ on Linen.
