    The Brass Bottle (First National, 1923). Title Card and Lobby Cards (5) (11" X 14"). A modern updating of the legend of Aladdin and his magic lamp, this charming fable, directed by Maurice Tourneur, is set in contemporary times and tells the story of Horace Ventimore (Harry Myers), a down-on-his-luck American architect who buys a large brass bottle to impress his fiancee's father, Professor Hamilton (Tully Marshall). The ploy fails, and Hamilton throws both Ventimore and the bottle out of his house. In a fit of pique, Ventimore smashes the bottle, releasing an ancient genii, who offers to grant Ventimore's every wish. Of course, hilarity ensues, and things get out of hand, but all ends well, with Ventimore and Marjorie (Charlotte Merriam) living happily ever after. Offered here is a beautiful collection of lobby cards from this charming film, featuring exquisite artwork. The cards are very attractive and clean, displaying only some slight tanning, and a small chip in the top border of one card. This will be a wonderful addition to any collection. Very Fine.
