    Description

    The Moonshine Feud (Unknown, 1920). One Sheet (27"X 41"). Born in Waco, Texas to a wholesale grocer and his wife, Texas Guinan rose to stardom as "Queen of the Nightclubs" and built a reputation of a fiercely independent, totally outspoken party girl. Guinan found work in Hollywood in the mid-teens, making two-reel westerns with several poverty row studios about a tough, gunslingin' woman. When that dried up, she moved to New York and built the "Hello Sucker" reputation and notoriety that would follow her for the rest of her life. In the late twenties, Warner Brothers hired her to star in a talking film called "Queen of the Nightclubs." It is believed that when this was released, this stock poster was produced to cash in on her renewed popularity, and thus her ten-year-old short films were reissued with sound effects and a musical score. Offered here is a very rare one sheet to one of the Texas Guinan reissue short films. This poster was linen backed, but prior to that had a piece missing which ran from the right border into the "c" and the "k" in "Sucker." The poster has been conserved and restored magnificently, and it is hard to tell that it was ever damaged. Fine- on Linen.
