    Description

    The Crimson Skull (Norman, 1922). Three Sheet (41" X 79") .
    Norman Film Company was able to shoot enough footage for The Bull-Dogger, the famous Bill Pickett feature, to produce a complementary dramatic piece called The Crimson Skull (1921).This film starred Anita Bush and Lawrence Criner in a tale about an outlaw gang's attempt to stir up trouble in the peaceful town of Boley, Oklahoma. It featured Steve "Peg" Reynolds, a one legged star who also appeared in The Green Eyed Monster, and includes footage of famous cowboy Bill Pickett, though almost always seen completely covered in skeleton costume. Norman released the two pictures almost simultaneously to receptive Black viewers who had heard of, but never seen, true Black cowboys. Professional restoration has addressed touchup to the folds with small chips towards the top of the poster. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
