    Hollywood (Paramount, 1923). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
    The story is a familiar one: a starstruck young girl (Hope Drown) travels to Hollywood, in search of fame and fortune. But what really makes this silent film special are the cameos by virtually the entire roster of Tinseltown royalty - in fact, so many stars were seen in cameo roles that it was necessary to cast unknowns in the leads. The stars included Mary Astor, William Boyd, Charles Chaplin, Bebe Daniels, Cecil B. DeMille, Douglas Fairbanks, Sid Grauman, Alan Hale, William S. Hart, Jack Holt, Pola Negri, Anna Q. Nilsson, Charles Ogle, Mary Pickford, Zasu Pitts, Will Rogers, Gloria Swanson, and Ben Turpin, just to name a few. In perhaps the most poignant cameo of all, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, whose career had been scuttled in 1921 as the result of a scandal surrounding the death of actress Virginia Rappe (he was eventually acquitted on all counts), appears briefly as an unemployed actor, standing forlornly in a casting line, unable to get work. The gorgeous stone litho one sheet offered here is extremely rare and highly desirable. It had some paper loss in the top and left borders, small tears in the top and bottom borders, pinholes in the corners, and crossfold separation in the bottom panel, but expert professional restoration has addressed all of these issues, rendering them virtually invisible. No fan of classic Hollywood will want to miss out on the chance to bid on this rare prize! From the Ira Resnick Collection. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
