    Description

    Fools for Luck (Paramount, 1928). Window Card (14" X 22").
    Although we now know W.C. Fields as a classic comedian, he was also an accomplished juggler and pool player. After running away from his alcoholic father at the age of eleven, Fields was making a living juggling and playing billiards by the time he was thirteen. His skill at the tables stood him in good stead years later when he co-starred in the silent, and now lost, film Fools for Luck, opposite veteran funnyman Chester Conklin. Featuring a great image of the two, touchup has been applied to pinholes in the interior, a tear in the left border into the background, creases, and the imprint area and borders have had airbrush. There is a small post-restoration tear at the top of the imprint area. This is a beautiful image on a card depicting to the two comedy legends. Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
