    Description

    The Devil's Needle (Triangle, 1916). Six Sheet (81" X 81").
    The Devil's Needle was an early picture to explore the horrors of heroin and drug addiction. Norma Talmadge, one of the silent cinema's major icons, stars as a heroin addict and model, who in order to ease the love sick pain of the artist she works for, played by Tully Marshall, gets him addicted. Large format posters from this era and the early Triangle films are very rare, and this six sheet has only been offered by Heritage once previously. The poster has been linenbacked to repair chips in the bottom border, bits of paper loss at the cross folds, and minor tears at the folds. Now displaying very well, the poster will make a fine addition to any collection. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
