    How Motion Pictures Are Made (Keystone, 1914). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (87" X 42").
    A peek behind the sets of movieland, this documentary style one reeler gives audiences a look at the daily goings-on at Kay-Bee studios. Wardrobes, make-up, sets, film development, and even a bird's eye view of Kay-Bee, Broncho, and Dominion studios are featured in the short film. Exceptionally rare, this stone litho poster has been professionally restored to correct fold wear and separations, creases, tears into the interior, and chips in the borders and folds. Airbrushing has been applied to the borders, completing the poster's restoration and making it ready for display.

    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
