Description

    Drums of Love (United Artists, 1928). Title Card and Lobby Cards (4) (11" X 14"). Based on the story of Francesca da Rimini, this late silent film features the lovely Mary Philbin (best known for her portrayal of Christine in The Phantom of the Opera) as Princes Emanuella, who agrees, sight unseen, to marry Duke Cathos de Alvia (Lionel Barrymore) in order to preserve the peace between their two countries. Unfortunately, she finds herself more attracted to the Duke's handsome brother, Leonardo (Don Alvarado), especially once she finds that her husband is ugly and misshapen. One of the last films that Griffith would direct, this is a spectacular drama, filled with D. W.'s trademark panache. The handsome title card offered here features a striking portrait of the director. It has staple holes on either side of the image area, some minor edge wear, and a small bump in the bottom left corner. Two of the scene cards show staple holes in the corners and slight edge wear, with a light crease in the bottom right corner of one, and some slight smudging in the border of another. One of the scene cards has been trimmed, laminated, and mounted to a piece of black board, which accounts for the low overall grade. Nevertheless, these are very attractive and desirable cards from the twilight of a great director's career. Fine.
