    Description

    The Ten Commandments (Paramount, 1923). Folded, Fine. 24 Sheet (104" X 232") Style B, Ralph W. Iligan Artwork.
    24 sheets are already among the rarest formats in the hobby, and the older they are the scarcer they get. Making its Heritage debut is this impressive oversized poster from Cecil B. De Mille's epic of Biblical proportions, a stone litho beauty printed in 12 panels. It poignantly and dramatically portrays the contrast between good and evil, with Moses (played by Theodore Roberts) holding the divine tablets of stone, and Miriam (played by Estelle Taylor) reveling in a pile of gold coins. Ralph W. Iligan, the artist for this poster, was a well-known illustrator who did work for propaganda posters in both World War I and II, as well as movie advertisements for The Lost World, Lilac Time, Half Shot at Sunrise, Dixiana, and Wells Fargo. An incredible poster, this 24 sheet has such signs of use as edge and fold wear, fold separations, creases and misfolds, and some tears. There are also small chips, noticeable surface rippling, and staining. Some of the tears, fold separations, and a couple of chips have been braced with strips and pieces of archival tape on the verso. Don't miss your chance to own this incredibly hard-to-find poster!
