    Description

    Mickey (Western Import, 1918). British One Sheet (27.25" X 41").
    As a teenager, Mabel Normand began working as a model in New York, then transitioned to film, working for Vitagraph and Biograph studios before making the move with Mack Sennett to his newly founded studio, Keystone. It was there that her acting career took off in hundreds of comedy shorts, some of which she co-starred with Charles Chaplin and Fatty Arbuckle, and occasionally directed. Her popularity quickly grew and audiences fell in love with the high-energy beauty. This romantic comedy represents Normand's first starring role in a full-length feature film, which she co-produced with Mack Sennett. It became one of her most successful films, grossing over $18 million, a record at the time, which would remain unsurpassed until 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Here Normand stars as the bubbly and untamed orphan Mickey, who is snubbed by her Eastern relatives after they realize her inherited gold mine has never paid off. The "portrait" style one sheet was sold in our Signature Auction five years ago. This British release version, also a lovely stone litho featuring the screen legend, is making its Heritage debut. Touchup has been applied to a small tear in the bottom and top left corner, a small tear in the center of the top border, fold wear, small crossfold chips, and pinholes in the corners. The linen has been trimmed to the border. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
