Description

    The Silent Enemy (Paramount, 1930). One Sheet (27" X 41"), Program (9" X 12"), and Broadside (11" X 14") .
    This little known but important film was begun in 1929 as a silent, but before its release in 1930 a sound prologue by Ojibway Chief Yellow Robe was added. This is the story of the tribe's heritage, beginning centuries ago and focusing on their struggle with the silent enemy: hunger. Collecting stories from living tribe members with actual footage of wolf attacks and reindeer and caribou hunts in Canada, this semi-documentary took a year to produce. This extraordinarily beautiful stone litho poster, with artwork reminiscent of Frederick Remington's wonderful Western paintings, has been expertly restored to address chips in the left and right borders, fold wear, and crossfold separations. The bottom and top borders had been trimmed by 1/2" and 3/4" respectively though all of the copyright information remained. Despite these issues, which are no longer apparent, the image area is nearly untouched and stunning. This is truly one of the finest and most elusive posters we have seen, and it will be a treasure for any collection. Also included in this lot is a program which shows wear, and a folded broadside. Fine+ on Linen.
