    Description

    The Black Pirate (United Artists, 1926). French Double Grande (63.5" X 94").
    In 1920, Douglas Fairbanks transformed himself from a charming star of light romantic comedies into a dashing hero when he starred in The Mark of Zorro. Fairbanks found that the action-oriented picture suited his athletic nature perfectly, and he soon embarked on additional swashbuckling roles, including such silent epics as The Three Musketeers (1921), Robin Hood (1922), The Thief of Bagdad (1924), and Don Q, Son of Zorro (1925), the follow-up to his initial black-masked role. It was then that Fairbanks set his sights on the high seas, adding "pirate" to his repertoire of dashing rogues, with this film, originally screened in two-strip Technicolor. Fairbanks plays the duke of Arnoldo, who goes undercover with the pirates who murdered his father, in order to gain revenge. Offered here is an extremely rare stone litho French Double Grande, the only copy known to exist, from this incredible film. Backed with rice paper, it is presented in two pieces. It had some fold wear, a few edge tears, and tears in the top right and the top center, as well as in the lower center of the image, but expert professional restoration has rendered these slight flaws virtually invisible. One of the nicest pieces produced for this lavish film, this is a piece that you will own and display proudly. Very Fine on Paper.
