    Description

    The Indian Raid (1911). British Three Sheet (40" X 85").
    Believed to be the first Native American filmmaker/producer in Hollywood, James Young Deer (1876-1946) began his cinematic career in 1909 in New York, playing in several one-reeler Westerns for companies such as Kalem, Lubin, Vitagraph and Biograph. Pathé Frères hired Young Deer as a director in 1910, and sent him to Los Angeles to make more realistic Indian-themed Westerns. His wife, actress Lillian St. Cyr, also known as "Red Wing," acted in many of his films. Young Deer acted in, wrote, or directed approximately 150 silent movies at Pathé's West Coast Studio, and is credited for his positive portrayals of Native Americans. Offered here is a very rare stone litho British three sheet printed by Stafford & Co., Ltd. lithographers near Nottingham. It was made during Young Deer's time with Pathé, and most likely was distributed by General Film Company. The poster shows some edge wear with small tears and minor creasing, light fold wear with a few minor separations, some staining in the borders at the folds going slightly into the background, some water damage on the verso, and a faint stain in the upper crossfold. The upper section has tears with small chips at the lower edge. Despite these issues, the poster looks stunning on display. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
