Description

    Grandma's Boy (Associated Exhibitors, 1922). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Labeled as "The King of Daredevil Comedy," Harold Lloyd is best remembered by many fans as the young man dangling desperately from a clock tower in the 1923 classic Safety Last. His artistic achievements of the silent era are often overshadowed by two of his contemporaries, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, even though he made more films than the two of them combined. Athletic and spontaneous, Lloyd performed his comedic daredevil stunts with grace and ease. In 1917, Lloyd created his most unforgettable character, one that was to remain a signature throughout his career. With round glasses, a straw hat, and an unkempt suit, this new persona was both the fool and the fox, bumbling imperfection that could cunningly outsmart the bad guys. One of Lloyd's best films, Grandma's Boy, was highly influential in promoting feature-length comedies which combined gags with character development. Lloyd is the boy of the title who's timid and struggling to find the courage to approach his favorite girl (Mildred Davis). His grandmother (Ann Townsend) gifts him a magic charm from the Civil War that was used by his brave grandfather--or was it? Heritage is proud to present for the first time the charming and very rare stone litho one sheet from the film, featuring Lloyd mustering his wits to woo the lovely Davis. The color is quite extraordinary, and restoration has the poster in display-ready condition. Touchup was applied to the folds, chips and or tears in three borders, pinholes in the top border, a chip in the top crossfold, a tear in Davis' cheek, the blue and green areas on the right side, and a small chip in the "Gr" of "Grandma." Fine+ on Linen.
