    Silent Comedy Short Subject Lot (Pathe', 1926-27). (2) One Sheets (27" X 41"). Offered in this lot are two one sheets representing Pathe' Studios comedy shorts. Both of these posters are rolled and never folded. They came from the collection of an apprentice at Morgan Litho from the mid to late twenties. The first is an animation comedy short entitled, "The Family Album" (1926). One of the interesting features of this poster is the artist's pencil notation on the front which reads, "Joe, the artist who was at Madina with me last Labor Day made the two figures. I made all the faces." The second is "Should Men Walk Home" (1927) starring Mabel Normand, who was perhaps the most famous female comedian of her day. Normand was one of the most prolific film stars of the period, who also wrote, and directed silent comedian Charlie Chaplin as well as many of her own films. "The Family Album" has border nicks and chips, tears and paper loss in the lower left corner. "Should Men Walk Home" has tears, stains and areas of paper loss in the borders. Both posters are rolled. Good.
