    Description

    The Great Air Robbery (Svenska Film, 1922). Swedish One Sheet (23.5" X 35").
    Omar Locklear wasn't merely a pilot, he was a daredevil, a man who thought nothing about tempting fate while walking on the wing of a biplane or leaping from one plane to another in mid-air. Inevitably, Hollywood beckoned, and Locklear relocated to the West Coast, where he soon came to the attention of Carl Laemmle, who signed the brave young man to a series of pictures. In 1919, Locklear made his first movie, The Great Air Robbery, which used all the stunts that had made Locklear a household name as a barnstormer. The picture was a hit, and Locklear would have been on his way to a fabulous career on the silver screen, if it weren't for his tragic on-screen death during the filming of his second film, The Skyway. Never before sold at Heritage, this lovely stone litho poster shows mild corner bends, a few minor tears in the upper and lower borders, a small smudge in the upper background, some creasing in the lower border, and a faint dust shadow in the left and right borders. Folded, Very Fine+.
