Description

    Marry in Haste (Universal, 1913). One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
    1913 was a banner year in film history. The first feature length film shot in Hollywood, The Squaw Man, was produced by Cecil B. DeMille. Charlie Chaplin signed a contract at Keystone with Mack Sennett, and Universal Film Manufacturing Company (Later simplified to Universal Films) began its move from New York to the West Coast. Universal started as the Yankee Film Company with Carl Laemmle and his brother-in-laws, Abe and Julius Stern, but soon became the Independent Moving Picture Company, based in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Laemmle created the first stars, Florence Lawrence and King Baggot, when he reversed the trend of not crediting actors. By 1915, Universal had its own studio in Hollywood and became one of the big six. This "Remarkably Clever" comedy short was one of the hundreds turned out in the early days of the company. Though the film is lost to the winds of time, this beautiful stone litho poster remains. The poster shows staining on the folds and borders, edge and fold wear with small tears. There was a hole in the title that has been restored. The linen is trimmed to the left and right borders, and not into the poster. Though backed on linen, very little restoration efforts have been made. Fine+ on Linen.
