    Description

    Taming of the Shrew (United Artists, 1929). One Sheet (27" X 41"). This early "talkie" marked the second time Mary Pickford would "speak" and, really, the first for Douglas Fairbanks. They appeared together for the first time (if Pickford's small uncredited role in "The Gaucho" is not counted). The Shakespeare story was well suited to their talents and produced favorable box-office results. Each star would make only three more films before retiring from the screen. This one sheet has edge wear and tears with a few small chips, cross fold separations with small loss of paper, and a few edge stains. The overall condition of this 76-year-old poster is excellent. It has beautiful, brightly-colored stone litho graphics. Very Fine-.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
