    Description

    Orphans of the Storm (United Artists, 1921). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    In what many consider to be his greatest motion picture accomplishment, D.W. Griffith skillfully combines melodrama and historical political intrigue to create one of the most spectacular and poignant films of the silent era of American cinema. Sisters Lillian and Dorothy Gish play the two orphans of the title, bringing pathos and a sense of realism to a moving story of two innocents who get caught up in the turbulent events of the French Revolution. This gorgeous portrait card of the two sisters, the best card in the set, is in superb condition. This card shows pinholes in the borders, a minor tears in the lower left border, and a couple of light corner creases. Very Fine+.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
