Description

    Drums of Love (United Artists, 1928). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    Based on the story of Francesca da Rimini, this silent film features the lovely Mary Philbin (best known for her portrayal of Christine in The Phantom of the Opera) as Princess Emanuella, who agrees, sight unseen, to marry Duke Cathos de Alvia (Lionel Barrymore) in order to preserve the peace between their two countries. Unfortunately, she finds herself more attracted to the Duke's handsome brother, Leonardo (Don Alvarado), especially once she finds that her husband is ugly and misshapen. One of the last films that Griffith would direct, this is a spectacular drama, filled with Griffith's trademark panache. This Heritage first shows edge wear, corner bends, a few corner chips, and unaddressed border stains. There is also some toning. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
