    Description

    The Heart of the Hills (Universal Film Manufacturing, 1914). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    This early short film, from fledgling Universal Studios, not only stars silent era heartthrob Wallace Reid, but he directed and wrote the film as well. He co-stars with his new wife, Dorothy Davenport. Reid, the son of a famous theatrical producer and director, wanted to work behind the camera as a director but due to his good looks was constantly in demand as an actor. A year after this film, Reid took a pay cut to join the cast of D.W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation. This led to a contract with Famous Players, and Reid became a major movie star. He would die tragically at the age of 31 in 1923 from morphine and alcohol addiction. The poster shows tears in the borders, staining, missing paper in the top border, and wrinkling. This only known copy is an historic poster from an important and early period in motion picture history. Very Good.
