Description

    Circus Days (First National, 1923). One Sheet (27" X 41"). One of the highest paid stars of the 1920s, Jackie Coogan would have his millions stolen by his mother and stepfather. Later, he labored to create the Coogan Law, which helped protect money earned by minors. This unique find shows an extremely rare one sheet used to produce the "insert" film poster style. This one sheet is essentially composed of two inserts, illustrating Coogan's two main roles in the film. The first depicts him as a snack vendor in a very boyish flop hat and long pants, after running off to join the circus. The second depicts him as a girl in a horseback rider costume, to fill in for a friend with a twisted ankle! Though printed as a single one sheet, these were, in essence, two insert-sized posters. This was done from time to time in the silent era, and it could be used in several ways: cut apart and used as individual inserts in front of the theater in glass cases, taped on the entrance as "door panels," or simply used as a whole, in a one sheet frame. This lovely, pastel-hued, stone lithography poster has been linen-backed. Great restoration has eliminated small pinholes, mild crossfold separations, and a small tear in the left border. Very Fine on Linen.
