    Description

    Snare of Society (Lubin, 1911). One Sheet (27" X 40.5").
    Florence Lawrence originally became known as the "Biograph Girl" and worked at that studio under the direction of D.W. Griffith. She left Biograph in 1909 to seek more recognizable employment at another film company and went to work for Carl Leammle, who had just started Independent Motion Picture Company, or IMP in New York. She and her husband, Harry Solter were IMP's first featured players. In 1910 Leammle decided to advertise the fact that he had signed Ms. Lawrence and the first Movie Star was born. The publicity made her famous and increased Leammle's grosses and consequently, other companies followed suit. She left IMP and moved to Lubin Studios the following year and that is where this film was made. This is an incredibly rare one sheet from one of Ms. Lawrence's early films and it is directed by her husband at the time, Harry Solter. This is the only copy of this one sheet known, that we are aware of. The poster had just minor border chipping and very minor fold and crossfold wear. This is a historical piece that should not be missed. Very Fine+on Linen.
