    Description

    His Majesty, the American (United Artists, 1919). One Sheet (27" X 41"). When Douglas Fairbanks, Charles Chaplin, Mary Pickford, and D.W. Griffith formed United Artists they had a dilemma -- only one of them was contractually free to make a film for the fledgling studio -- and that was Fairbanks. He came through with this winning picture, playing his usual athletic and comedic character (at least for his pre-swashbuckling days) -- a young man with too much energy and vigor for his own good -- in a Prisoner of Zenda-like backdrop. This beautiful, unrestored one sheet is from the very first film released by the newly formed United Artists! This is a stunning stone lithograph produced by the H.C. Miner Litho Company. There is a single pinhole in each corner and very minor centerpoint separation. The lower border has minor wear. Don't miss this rare and historically important poster. Very Fine+.
