    Description

    The Hazards of Helen (General, 1915). Three Sheet (38.75" X 77.5") Chapter 52 -- "Danger Ahead."
    Clocking in at an astounding 23.8 hours, The Hazards of Helen is among the longest non-feature films in cinema history and is considered to be the longest serial ever made, spanning a total of 119 episodes. The series originally starred Helen Holmes as its titular heroine for the first 49 chapters, and then cast her fearless stunt double, Rose "Helen" Wenger Gibson, as its new lead after Holmes left to start her own company. Already a semi-celebrity due to her marriage to Hoot Gibson, the new Helen proved to be just as talented and popular an actress as the original in the series' remaining 69 episodes. Danger Ahead marks one of Gibson's first starring chapters, and is the first of any paper Heritage has ever sold for the film. This exciting stone litho three sheet shows edge and fold wear with noticeable separations, chipping and tears in the borders and folds, staining with surface rippling, pinholes, and toning. The lower border has been folded over and glued down. Fine- on Kraft Paper.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
