    Greed (MGM, 1924). Folded, Very Fine+. Broadside (6.25" X 13").
    Offered here is a creative promotional item for the classic film Greed. Designed like a wanted poster for John "Doc" McTeague (portrayed in the film by Gibson Gowland) for the murder of his wife. Giving the appearance of an authentic wanted poster, this is actually an MGM promotional broadside for the film. The names of Director Erich Von Stroheim and Metro-Goldwyn Pictures appear at the bottom of the poster. Printed on thin pulp paper stock, the poster gives the illusion of having old stain marks, furthering the impression that it is a McTeague wanted poster. In wonderful condition for its age, this broadside shows only a few mild creases, a minute tear, and light edge wear. Promotional material on this epic title is indeed a scarcity. Folded, Very Fine+.

    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
