Description

    Dream Street (United Artists, 1921). One Sheet (28" X 41"). Although D. W. Griffith was one of the founders of United Artists in 1919, along with Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford, and Charlie Chaplin, his tenure there was brief; by 1924, due to dwindling box office revenues, he left UA to direct movies for Paramount. Nevertheless, the five years he spent at UA resulted in some of his greatest films, including Broken Blossoms (1919), Way Down East (1920), Orphans of the Storm (1921), and this spectacular picture. Dream Street is a classic melodrama about three men; roughneck Spike (Ralph Graves), his brother, shy composer Billy (Charles Emmett Mack), and devious Asian Swan Way (Edward Piel), all in love with music hall dancer Gypsy Fair (Carol Dempster). When Gypsy rejects Swan Way's advances, he embroils her and the others in an insidious tangle of lies, jealousy, and murder. The stunning stone litho one sheet offered here had small tears in the image area, some edge tears, a missing top right corner, minor edge chipping, and several small to medium chips in the body of the poster, but all of these issues have been expertly addressed with professional restoration, resulting in a poster that appears as clean and fresh as the day it was printed. Griffith material from this period is very scarce and highly desirable. Very Good on Linen.
