DescriptionA Welcome Intruder (General Film, 1913). British One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
Most sources, including many biographies and even the Library of Congress, will credit D.W. Griffith as this picture's director. However, we now know from the personal scrapbook of Anthony O'Sullivan that it was he and not Griffith that directed the film, as it has been erroneously listed for years. Although he had only been directing for about seven months at the time, 1913 was a prolific year for O'Sullivan, churning out a total of over thirty pictures from March to December. This particular short starred Charles Hill Mailes, Kate Toncray, and Charles West, and also featured popular matriarch actress Claire McDowell in a smaller part. A lovely stone litho poster, this British one sheet has partial touchup to the folds, some paper loss in the right border, and mild border tears. Still visible are creases at the top and some stains and smudging in the borders. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
