    Description

    My Dad (FBO, 1922). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This is Hollywood's top canine actor, Rin Tin Tin, in only his second film. He free-lanced with FBO and other studios, before signing with Warner Bros. He was a brand new puppy when found in a bombed German dog kennel during WWI by an American Corporal, Lee Duncan. The intelligent and highly trainable Shepherd would eventually receive over 12,000 fan letters a week during the 1920s. Most don't realize he was named after a one inch tiny French puppet that was often given to American soldiers for good luck. This wonderful one sheet is unique in that it does not have a dangerous stunt or imperiled scene as its focus. Instead, it dramatically emphasizes perhaps the best quality of any top breed...unconditional loyalty. The handsome leading man he's guarding is Johnnie Walker, who was billed in 1920 as "America's Favorite Son," after acting in one of the silent era's most wildly popular films, Over the Hill to the Poorhouse. First class linen backing has rendered this stone litho poster near perfect. There was little restoration performed other than addressing some minor fold wear, and adding 1/4" to 1/2" of white paper to the borders for edge wear. Fine on Linen.
