Description

    Mike and Jake as Heroes (Universal Film Manufacturing, 1913). One Sheet (28" X 42").
    This film was one of over a dozen popular installments in the Mike and Jake silent comedy series (1913-1914), starring Harry McCoy and Max Asher. McCoy had a full career as actor and director, often cast as a Keystone Cop, appearing alongside Charlie Chaplin and Mabel Normand. He got his start in cinema with Selig, Keystone, and Joker, the production company for this film. This wonderful stone litho poster features playful artwork of jesters surrounding a scene in which the "heroes" save the damsel during a stagecoach holdup. A first time offer from Heritage, this one sheet is a superb find for fans of very early cinema and may be the only extant copy from a film produced in Universal's second year of existence. Very Fine- on Linen.
