    Description

    The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come (Goldwyn, 1920). One Sheet (28" X 41").
    Young Jack Pickford, younger brother of the famous star Mary Pickford, stars in this, the first film version of the serialized novel from Scribner's Magazine. The film is the story of the Old South prior to and during the Civil War. Pickford was a ne'er-do-well playboy and carouser from most accounts, who aroused more public interest because of his scandalous off-camera life than in the light romantic films he appeared in. He picked up alcohol, drug and gambling addictions to accompany his partying lifestyle. He would die at the age of 36, after three failed marriages, from what was assuredly the effect of chronic alcoholism. This one sheet would most certainly have to be one of the best ever produced for this tragic star. Considered one his better films, it was during this period that his sister applied all of her resources to assure that he was given what was necessary to make him a star. There has been minimal touch up to fold wear, small chips and tears in the borders, and one tear that extends from the top border in Pickford's hair. An extraordinary find for collectors of early Hollywood nostalgia. Fine on Linen.
