    Description

    By Radium's Rays (Universal Film Manufacturing, 1914). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    This very rare, beautiful stone litho three sheet is from the 1914 dramatic short starring Herbert Rawlinson, Edna Maison, and Frank Lloyd. Although Lloyd did not received top billing for his role, his Hollywood career is perhaps the more illustrious of the three stars. He was later better known for his directorial talents, earning the distinction of being the only person ever to win a best director Oscar for a film (The Divine Lady, 1929) that was not nominated for Best Picture. Lloyd also directed seven actors in Oscar-nominated performances, including Clark Gable, Franchot Tone and Basil Rathbone. In 1914 Carl Laemmle, a film distributor, along with Bill Swanson of American Éclair, Pat Powers of Powers Picture Company and Mark Dintenfass of Champion Films, joined forces to form Universal Film Manufacturing Company and established a studio on 235 acres of land in the San Fernando Valley, California. This short film was their 66th release. The poster shows signs of age, such as edge and fold wear and tears, some staining, wrinkling, and cross fold separation with some paper loss. Very Good.
