    The Bondage of Barbara (Goldwyn, 1919). Rotogravure One Sheet (28.25" X 42.5").
    When Tony Grey (Jack McLean) is framed for a theft from a lumber company's cash office, his sister, the angelic Barbara (Mae Marsh) takes the rap and spends a year in a reformatory. Tony is kidnapped by the real crook, and held captive; once again coming to her brother's defense, Barbara disguises herself as a boy and takes his place, freeing Tony to go to the District Attorney and set things straight. Marsh, a popular actress of the day, appeared in many of D. W. Griffith's films, including Birth of a Nation (1915) and Intolerance (1916), and continued working sporadically well into the sound era, especially after becoming one of John Ford's favorite actresses. Her filmography grew to nearly 200 films and TV appearances before she retired for good in 1964. This elegant rotogravure poster had pinholes in the corners, a tear and a small edge chip in the bottom border, some slight chipping in the image area, and edge chips in the right side, but expert professional restoration has addressed all these minor issues, returning the poster to a like-new appearance. Highly desirable and eminently displayable, this is a poster you'll be proud to own. Fine+ on Linen.
