    Description

    Beau Geste (Paramount, 1926). Good on Paper. Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    Ronald Colman plays the title role in the first of several screen adaptations of Christopher Wren's tale of adventure in the foreign legion. Colman is the youngest of three brothers who takes the blame when their aunt steals jewelry from the family's estate to pay off her home. He flees the country with his brothers, played by Ralph Forbes and Neil Hamilton. The brothers all join the French Foreign Legion, where they suffer under a cruel sergeant (Noah Beery Sr). Colman considered his performance in Beau Geste the finest work of his career. Professionally restored, conservation has corrected edge wear, enlarged pinholes, chips, and tears into the interior. It also had paper loss and chipping along the bottom border into the edge of the printing, as well as staining in the image. The borders and parts of the interior have been airbrushed, with a few post-restoration cracks in the touchup. Good on Paper.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
