    Description

    The Cameraman (MGM, 1928). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Buster Keaton is considered one of the greatest comic actors of all time. His influence on physical comedy is rivaled only by Charlie Chaplin. Like many of the great actors of the silent era, Keaton's work was cast into near obscurity for many years. Only toward the end of his life was there a renewed interest in his films. An acrobatically skillful and psychologically insightful actor, Keaton made dozens of short films and fourteen major silent features, attesting to one of the most talented and innovative artists of his time. After doing nine films under the auspices of Joseph Schenck and United Artists, he was offered a lucrative contract by the reigning power in film at the time, MGM Studios. Though counseled not to take the offer by Chaplin and Harold Lloyd, Keaton took the deal and his fade into obscurity is history. Offered here is the title card to the first film he made under the MGM banner, a film that is still considered one of his classics, "The Cameraman." This card has two minor staple indentations in the left and right borders, and has a numeral 4 written in the upper left corner. The card is outstanding in its color and condition. Very Fine+.
