    Description

    Way Down East (United Artists, 1920). One Sheet (28.5" X 41").
    If you've never seen Lillian Gish's performance in Way Down East, you simply haven't experienced the best the silent era has to offer. Her work here should be required viewing for any aspiring young actress. Gish moves flawlessly from fragile and innocent country girl, to ecstatic bride, to betrayed "wife," to bereaved unwed mother, and finally a matured woman..and all without uttering a single word. This is only the second one sheet we've offered for this landmark D. W. Griffith/Lillian Gish classic. The venerable H. C. Miner Lithograph Company, New York, let the poster tell the climax of the story, where Gish is rescued from an ice floe at the last possible minute by Richard Barthelmess. This stone litho gem has had touchup to the folds and a couple of minor border chips. Still visible is some staining in the borders, and well as small spots in the image area. From the collection of noted film historian Richard Schickel. Fine+ on Linen.
