Description

    Molly O (Associated First National Pictures, 1921). One Sheet (27" X 40.5") Style B. If anyone could be credited with being the first to bring screen comedy to the world, it would be Mabel Normand! She was Mack Sennett's first star after setting up his own company following his break with Biograph Studios. This gorgeous stone litho poster is from the first film that Mabel Normand made upon her return to the Sennett Studios after an unsuccessful stint toiling for Samuel Goldwyn. A charming Cinderella story about a common girl who falls in love with a rich, handsome doctor, the film's release was delayed as one member of the cast, Lowell Sherman, a villain in this picture, had been in the news recently as one of the attendees at Fatty Arbuckle's infamous party the night Virginia Rappe died, and Sennett thought it prudent to allow the scandal to subside before premiering the movie. Consequently, Sherman's name has been totally excised from the screen credits. This lovely poster had pinholes in the corners, a V-shaped piece missing from the right side, and small chips in the bottom left border, but professional restoration has addressed all of these issues, returning the poster to a beautiful Near Mint appearance. This great image of Normand is one of few that survive from her illustrious but short career. Very Fine- on Linen.
