DescriptionA Soldier's Oath (Fox, R-1918). One Sheet (27" X 41").
A film about thievery, wrongful imprisonment, and murder, this silent drama starred William Farnum as a kindhearted father framed for the murder of a wealthy friend's wife. Farnum made his film debut in the 1914 Western The Spoilers, the same year his brother, Dustin, would star in Cecil B. DeMille's The Squaw Man. After signing with Fox, Farnum would take on lead roles in popular films such as If I Were King, Les Misérables, and A Tale of Two Cities. A rare item, this lovely stone litho poster shows a touching image of Farnum reunited with his daughter after ten years in prison. The poster shows edge wear, some fold separation, creasing, and small chips and tears in the borders. There is a pinhole in the upper left background and staining in the borders with some surface rippling in the interior. The majority of the interior, however, is in good condition. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
