    Description

    The High-Born Child and the Beggar (Kalem, 1913). Three Sheet (40" X 89").
    A tender tale of friendship leads ultimately to heartbreak in this touching and dramatic silent short. A crippled young child, born into wealth, forms a bond with and gives gifts to a little beggar girl who visits him from the other side of the bars of his family's estate. Her most treasured gift being that of a little white flower. Their relationship is halted when a servant permanently separates the two, causing the high-born child to grow ill. Upon learning of his poor health, the beggar girl attempts to reach her friend, only to arrive moments after his death. While making rounds late that night, a patrolman finds the form of the little beggar girl motionless near a stream, clasping to a withered white flower. A rare find, and offered through Heritage for the first time, this beautiful stone litho poster has staple holes in the borders, a torn pinhole in the lower right corner, edge wear with tears and some small chips, a chip in the upper edge of the lower section, a chip in the lower border slightly into the background, and tape on the verso. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
