    Description

    The Devil's Tower (Rayart Pictures, 1928). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). One of the lesser-known silent cowboys, Buddy Roosevelt's legacy is perhaps best summed up by the breaks he inadvertently gave to others. In 1928, he was offered, and accepted, the role of the Cisco Kid in In Old Arizona. Unfortunately, he broke his leg shortly before filming was to begin, and the part went to Warner Baxter, who won an Academy Award for his performance. A few years later, he was offered a part in a series of low budget "B" Westerns being filmed for Monogram. Roosevelt accepted the deal, but his wife went behind his back and demanded more money. Angered, the producer rescinded his offer, and gave the part to a young actor named John Wayne, setting the actor on the road to eventual fame and fortune. Nevertheless, Roosevelt had a career that spanned nearly four decades, often appearing in uncredited roles. Offered here is an attractive set of cards from one of Roosevelt's silent pictures. The title card shows dust shadowing along the right edge, as well as pinholes in the corners. The scene cards all have pinholes in the corners, and some slight surface smudging, but apparently have been very lightly used. For any fan of silents or Westerns, this set will be a welcome addition to your collection. Very Fine.
