    Description

    Madcap Madge (Triangle Kay-Bee, 1917). Folded, Fine+. One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
    Former "Ziegfeld Follies" girl Olive Thomas made a significant number of silent films in just a few short years, including Youthful Folly, The Flapper, Everybody's Sweetheart, and this comedy, Madcap Madge. She also posed for the famed pin-up artist Alberto Vargas, and married Jack Pickford, brother of screen star Mary Pickford. Unfortunately, her career was cut short when she died tragically at the age of twenty-six after accidentally ingesting mercury. This wonderful stone litho poster has wear and missing pieces from the upper border, as well as some wear to the lower border. There is some soiling primarily to the upper and lower left border. Folded, Fine+.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
