    Description

    Nurse Marjorie (Realart, 1920). One Sheet (27" X 41"). A stunning stone lithograph from 1920 film starring Mary Miles Minter, who was being groomed to be 'the next Mary Pickford." This gorgeous stone litho poster is from a film directed by William Taylor Desmond and the film is one of the very few surviving of Ms. Minter's entire filmography. In contrast to her delicate ingénue screen image, Mary was rather strong and intelligent, well read, and could even pilot an airplane, but she had to live under the domination of her stage mother, Charlotte Shelby, a frustrated actress who lived her own life's ambitions through Mary and her sister Margaret, and who managed Mary's career and personal life with an iron fist. While making films with director William Desmond Taylor at Realart Studios, Mary developed what was by all accounts a schoolgirl crush on the older director. When the director was found murdered in his home in 1922 (a crime that was never officially solved), Mary and her mother Charlotte initially came under suspicion as suspects, although they were both eventually cleared by the L.A. Police Department. However the publicity over the presence of a love note written by Mary to Taylor, and a supposed nightgown in his home embroidered with her name, doomed her career in the public's regard and affections. Much of the right border has chips including the upper right corner, a chip in the upper center border, and very minor chips in the crossfold around the facial area. Very Fine- on Linen.
