Description

    Fatty and the Broadway Stars (Keystone-S.A. Lynch, R-1918). One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
    Fatty Arbuckle directs this silent comedy in which he also stars as a hapless sweeper who manages to disrupt a series of shoots on a film lot, with every major Keystone player appearing as themselves (with emphasis on the Broadway stars) -- Mack Sennett, William Collier, Mae Busch, Chester Conklin, Polly Moran, Al St. John, and Ford Sterling to name just a handful. Asheville, North Caroline native S.A. Lynch began buying up and managing movie theaters in the South in 1909 and by the mid 1910s obtained a 25-year exclusive right to distribute Paramount motion pictures in eleven states. In 1917, he bought into the Triangle Distributing Company and released several films under the designation "Distributed by S.A. Lynch Enterprises." As turmoil within Triangle escalated, Lynch bought out the other two owners. He continued to make a profit by re-cutting and releasing previously created Triangle films well into 1919. Arbuckle, Sennett and Collier appear on this rare stone litho one sheet, the first paper Heritage has presented from this film. Restoration has the poster display-ready after carefully addressing small chips in the borders, image area, and lower section of the poster (Arbuckle's legs, and in "Sennett" and "Arbuckle."), and a larger chip in the lower left border just below the studio logo. The colors are well saturated and the overall impression of the poster is quite pleasing. Fine- on Linen.
