    Description

    Battling Butler (MGM, 1926). Insert (14" X 36").
    Wimpy millionaire Alfred Butler, portrayed by Buster Keaton, wants only to impress The Mountain Girl (Sally O'Neil), whom he has just met. However, a case of mistaken identity leads Alfred on an unexpected path he feels he must follow in order to prove himself to her. The lengths to which he must go, and the love felt by Keaton's character toward O'Neil's are on display in this charming insert. An absolute must for Bust Keaton collectors, this poster looks great after professional restoration addressed edge wear, pinholes in the borders and background, and chipping in the upper right corner. There was a crease from the upper border into the center of the yellow background and some paper loss in Keaton's leg with a tear into the portrait circle. The borders and background are airbrushed as well as some touchup to the title and a tiny amount of airbrushing has chipped off at the bottom right. Fine-on Paper.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
