    Treasure Island (Paramount-Artcraft, 1920). Lobby Cards (7) (11" X 14").
    Lon Chaney makes an early appearance on two of these rare cards as George Merry, one of Long John Silver's pirates. Treasure Island was one of the most successful films in the career of director Maurice Tourneur, coming in as one of the top box office films of 1920. Unfortunately, no prints of the film are known to exist today. Although we previously sold these lobby cards in 2007, this lot differs in that six of the lobbies are hand-tinted, and one is a totally different card (untinted) not featured in the eight cards thought previously to be a full set, making the original set at least a set of nine. As a special note of interest, Basil Rathbone gifted these cards to Marlene Dietrich in the 1930s. All of the cards but one have a pinhole in the center of the top border, and one has small surface paper loss in the left border. Very Fine.
