Description

    A Film Exposure (Triangle, 1917). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    In 1915, the Triangle Film Corporation was founded in Culver City, California by Harry and Roy Aitken, brothers who would pioneer the studio system that would define Hollywood for the next several decades. Considered a prestige studio, Triangle soon attracted such leading talents as D. W. Griffith, Thomas Ince, Mack Sennett, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks Sr., Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, and Lillian Gish. Their success was fleeting, however, and in 1918, they were absorbed into Samuel Goldwyn's Goldwyn Pictures Corporation. Today, the studio is primarily remembered for some of their landmark successes, including the popular Keystone Kops pictures and Griffith's landmark epic, Birth of a Nation. Little is known about the movie represented here, save that it starred Jay Dwiggins - presumably the man in the center of the poster - an actor with nearly fifty films to his credit between 1914 and his death in 1919. Nonetheless, this is a stunning example of stone lithography. Prior to expert professional restoration, it had pinholes in the corners, fold wear with crossfold separation and some paper loss at the top fold, as well as some chipping at the fold in the right border, in the left border, and in the center fold line. Other than these extremely minor flaws, the poster is in superb condition, a fabulous reminder of a bygone age. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
