    Description

    Shell Forty-Three (Triangle, 1916). Six Sheet (79" X 81").
    An amazing find, this is the six sheet format from the silent film war drama Shell Forty-Three. Along with the one sheet from the film, this poster is making its Heritage debut in the July 2016 Signature Auction. H.B. Warner stars as a British spy sent under the guise of American war correspondent to Germany to quickly win the confidence of the military brass. Also featured, in a very early role, is future MGM star John Gilbert, who portrays an English spy. They both can be seen (Gilbert is on the far left) in this striking stone litho image that has retained impressive color. Signs of handling include crossfold separations, a stain in "Triangle," a tear in the right border, light stains in the top and bottom border, light stains in the bottom section where it meets the top section, and light wrinkling. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
