DescriptionThe Hun Within (Paramount-Artcraft, 1918). One Sheet (28" X 41.5").
Part melodrama and part wartime propaganda, Dorothy Gish departs from her comedic stylings to play an orphaned girl placed in the care of a German-American family friend, played by George Fawcett. But there's intrigue afoot when the family's son (Charles K. Gerrard) returns from studying in the Fatherland, now acting as a spy and saboteur for the Kaiser. Douglas MacLean makes his appearance as Gish's childhood friend and current Secret Service operative, out to stop Gerrard and his destructive scheme. Skillful restoration to this beautiful Heritage first has addressed edge and fold wear with chips and tears into the interior. There was paper loss along several parts of the borders that extended into the interior, including the bottom right corner halfway into the Paramount logo, and at the top, dipping down into the backs and tops of Dorothy Gish's and Douglas MacLean's heads. The borders, background, and much of the image have been airbrushed, making this stone litho poster display-ready with a brilliant image. Good/Very Good on Linen.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
