DescriptionFools for Luck (Paramount, 1928). Folded, Very Fine. Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 39.5").
Although we now know W.C. Fields as a classic comedian, he was also an accomplished juggler and pool player. After running away from his alcoholic father at the age of eleven, Fields was making a living juggling and playing billiards by the time he was thirteen. His skill at the tables stood him in good stead years later when he co-starred in the silent, and now lost, film Fools for Luck, opposite veteran funnyman Chester Conklin. Featuring a great image of the two, and based on art from the American poster campaign, this poster has wear and minor chipping on the middle and lower center points.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
