    Description

    Beau Geste Lot (Paramount, 1926). Jumbo Lobby Cards (2) (14" X 17").
    The first of several film versions of Christopher Wren's classic adventure story features the dashing Ronald Colman in the tile role. This exciting tale of life in the French Foreign Legion follows the lives of Beau and his brothers, John (Ralph Forbes) and Digby (Neil Hamilton), as they struggle to survive under the tyrannical rule of the merciless despot, Sgt. Lejaune (Noah Beery). Included in this lot is a jumbo lobby card for the sequel, Beau Sabreur (Paramount, 1928), which featured Gary Cooper, Evelyn Brent and William Powell. The Beau Geste card has tape on the verso, a chip in the top left corner, a chip in the right and bottom border, edge wear, and minor edge tears. The Beau Sabreur card has pinholes in the corners and field, a dust shadow on the left border a tear on the bottom border that extends into the field and corner bends. Paper for these two silent adventure classics is hard to come by. Fine-.
