    Description

    From Farm to Fame (United Artists, 1922). Fine+ on Linen. Trimmed One Sheet (27" X 40").
    Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, and Hope Hampton, three of the top silent stars from the early 1920s, are featured on this splendid Ritchey stone lithograph piece. The trio judged an annual nationwide beauty contest held by Eugene Brewster, publisher of Motion Picture Classic and Shadowland, two of the day's leading film magazines. Below them is a portrait of the 1920 winner, Corliss Palmer, who bested Mary Astor. At age sixteen, Clara Bow would win this same contest, starting her career. Restoration has been applied to slight fold wear and separation, misfolds, as well as small tears and chips. The upper and lower borders have been slightly trimmed and the linen has been trimmed to the borders.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
