    Description

    Beasts of Paradise (Big-U, 1923). Swedish One Sheet (22.75" X 35").
    Presumed lost, this William Desmond starring silent adventure series supposedly managed to squeeze into 15 episodes the excitement of fights with lions, elephants, alligators, and other jungle wildlife, as well as aquatic thrills including a tussle with a shark. Just as exciting as the events portrayed in the film is this stone litho beauty featuring danger at sea. A Heritage first, there are tears in the borders, a chip in the lower border, a very small hole in the background, a small tear in the background, and museum tape on the verso. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
