    Description

    Oil's Well That Ends Well (Fox, 1919). One Sheet (27" X 41"). November 15, 1907, is generally believed to be the first daily comic strip, not just the first to appear in "strip" form but the first to appear on a reliable, six-day-a-week schedule, with continuing characters.The strip was Bud Fisher's "A. Mutt." In the following year the skinny Mutt met the diminutive Jeff and the rest is history. This one sheet from the "Mutt and Jeff" animated series features the series' namesakes about to be executed. The series ran from 1913 to 1926 and were originally produced by Pathe and moved to Fox Films in about 1918. This incredibly rare poster displayed fold wear, and an extra vertical fold at one time, however, the poster has been mounted on linen and professionally restored, giving it a very clean appearance. Very Fine on Linen.
