    Description

    The Cameraman (MGM, 1928). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Buster Keaton is considered one of the greatest comic actors of all time. His influence on physical comedy is rivaled only by Charlie Chaplin. An acrobatically skillful and psychologically insightful actor, Keaton made dozens of short films and fourteen major silent features, attesting to one of the most talented and innovative artists of his time. After doing nine films under the auspices of Joseph Schenck and United Artists, he was offered a lucrative contract by the reigning power in film at the time, MGM Studios. At MGM Keaton was put under a much tighter leash and ultimately the creative control he once knew was greatly diminished. Despite the loss of his creative independence, Buster Keaton somehow was able to make a comic masterpiece within the studio-system constrictions of MGM. This poster has been beautifully restored to correct paper loss along the entire right edge of the poster which just extended in to the yellow field and affected none of the graphics other than the two "N"s on the outer right side of the title. The poster had some staining in the yellow field and there was painting within the field to correct. Other than minor border chips elsewhere on the poster, the image and left side, top and bottom of the poster was completely intact. Very Good+ on Linen.
