    Description

    The Flying Ace (Norman, 1926). Three Sheet (41" X 79").
    Released in 1926 with an "All-Colored Cast," and starring Lawrence Criner and Kathryn Boyd, this film was a major hit for Norman Studios. Criner plays a World War I fighter pilot who returns home a hero. Peg Reynolds is Criner's sidekick, and together they rescue Boyd and her father from railroad thieves. The film boasts death defying feats in "the greatest airplane thriller ever filmed," but in reality, Norman shot all the airplane scenes with the plane on the ground. Even so, the film was a sensation, and grossed close to $20,000 through Norman's distribution efforts. This beautiful stone litho three sheet is in excellent condition, with only light fold wear. Folded, Very Fine+.
