    The Sea Beast (Warner Brothers, 1926). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Warner Brothers brought John Barrymore to the studio in 1924 to lend credibility to their pictures, and what was more appropriate to tackle than the classic Herman Melville story, Moby Dick? The film was a loose adaptation of the novel, rewritten to give the story more of a romantic flair. This 10-reel silent was the film on which Barrymore wooed his future wife, Dolores Costello, whom he would marry soon after the picture wrapped. Barrymore would later remember this film as his favorite and he would star in the remake in 1930 titled Moby Dick. The lovely title card offered here has had the borders trimmed up to the image and it had one pinhole within the image. Beautiful professional restoration has returned the card to its former glory, it now appears in beautiful condition. Very Good on Paper.
