    Description

    Hair Trigger Stuff (Universal, 1920). Good/Very Good on Linen. One Sheet (28" X 42").
    This very early short subject Western Hoot Gibson made for Universal was released in the period about two years before he would become a major star and would give up his short films for full-length features. Mildred Moore would be a frequent co-star with Hoot in a number of his short subjects. Professionally restored, this stone litho poster no longer shows fold wear and separations, enlarged pinholes, tears into the interior, and chipping in the borders and folds, including in Mildred Moore's forehead. The borders once had a slight trim, but have since been replaced. The white and yellow borders, credits, and right background have been airbrushed. The poster was assembled from two different original posters during restoration.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
