    Description

    Painted People (First National, 1924). One Sheet (27" X 41.5").
    Colleen Moore, one of the brightest starlets of the silent era, plays opposite Ben Lyon in this Clarence G. Badger film about society, money, and love. The film's shooting was rife with behind-the-scenes drama, as Moore's biggest rival, Clara Bow, had originally been cast as the heroine's sister. Moore was so afraid of being upstaged by the younger star that she demanded Badger never give Bow any closeups. In retaliation, Bow went to her doctor, insisted on an emergency sinus surgery, and arrived to the set covered in bandages, forcing the director to discard her role and all of her footage. Never sold before by Heritage, this beautiful stone litho poster has touchup to the folds, a mild tear on the left side of the middle horizontal fold, a bottom left corner chip, and a few pinholes in the top border and background. There was some writing in the upper right background that has been corrected with touchup. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
