    A Barber Cure (Biograph Studios, 1913). Folded, Fine+. One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
    Never before offered at Heritage, this rare stone litho poster for the short 1913 comedy A Barber Cure features the members of the film's love triangle involving Louise Orth as Flossie Fluff, Charles Murray as Flossie's new noble love, and Gus Pixley as Flossie's rejected barber suitor. Of course, the spurned lover gets his petty revenge later using his beard trimming skills to their worst. The director of this short comedy, Edward Dillon, was a prolific player in early Hollywood, having appeared in over 300 films with over 140 directing credits under his belt. The poster displays minor tears and scuffs, and it has fold separations including a moderate separation in the top quarter of the center vertical fold. There are a few noticeable creases near the top of the poster, and there are two extra vertical folds. The poster has faint smudges as well as some noticeable staining in the image, and there are a few pieces of paper and cellophane tape on the verso.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
