    Poker Faces (Universal, 1926). Rolled, Fine. Cloth Banner (118.5" X 36").
    This silent era comedy starred two of Universal Studio's top comedic talents, Edward Everett Horton and Laura La Plante. In a case of mistaken identity, common in plots of the day, jealousy and mayhem ensue! La Plante is probably best remembered as starring in The Cat and the Canary (1927) and Horton had a very long career as a character actor. Printed in stone litho, this cloth banner has mild fraying at the edges, creasing, scuffing, and surface wear. There is also a small chip, smudging, staining, and dust shadows. The corners of the banner had been folded back prior to when its grommets were inserted, which was most likely done by the studio.

    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
