DescriptionThe Passion Flower (First National, 1921). One Sheet (27" X 41").
The great Norma Talmadge was at the height of her fame when she filmed this silent melodrama full of lies, murder, and betrayal. Under the direction of Herbert Brenon, Talmadge starred alongside other silver screen stars like Harrison Ford, Courtenay Foot, and even her sister Natalie (the future wife of Buster Keaton). This stone litho printed poster has been professionally restored to address the fold wear with tears and chips, chipping and tears in the borders and image area, a vertical tear in Talmadge's fan, a vertical tear in the left background, and three tears from the upper border into the image. The professionally restored poster now displays beautifully. Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
