Description

    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Pioneer, 1920). Window Card (14" X 22").
    The same year that Paramount released its version of the famous Robert Louis Stevenson story starring John Barrymore, Pioneer Film released a smaller budget adaptation starring Sheldon Lewis. In his long career, Lewis appeared in many silent films, including Orphans of the Storm and Taming of the Shrew (1925). Director Charles Hayden based his film on the stage play, as it was performed by Richard Mansfield in London in 1887. Before the appearance of a few window cards, no known posters were believed to exist from this film, other than a few lobby cards. This wonderful card is very reminiscent of Victorian-era woodcut prints. Within the smoke behind the Doctor's back lurks Hyde! Touchup has been applied to the "yde" of "Hyde" and to part of Mr. Hyde's image. The borders and imprint area have been airbrushed. Fine/Very Fine on Cardstock.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
