    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. Keaton is seen taking a outstretched glove to the face, as well as engaging in a soft embrace with O'Neil. A must for Buster Keaton collectors. Prior to restoration, the insert had pinholes in the top left corner, missing paper in the image area, a chip in the top right corner, and stains. Blue and white areas, and the upper portion of Keaton's body have been airbrushed. Very Good/Fine on Paper.
