DescriptionThe Cook (Paramount, 1918). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
Fatty Arbuckle, Buster Keaton and Al St. John star in this silent slapstick comedy, which was thought to be lost until the Norwegian Film Archive found a damaged nitrate print in 1998. One of its best scenes features Arbuckle spoofing the 1918 Theda Bara film Salome, as he dances around with sausage links, pots and pans, and a cabbage in the place of John the Baptist's head. The first of any domestic paper Heritage has ever offered for the film, this lobby card shows pinholes in the borders, corner bends, unobtrusive stains and smudges, and a couple of small tears. Very Fine-.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
