The Lost City (Warner Brothers, 1920). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Chapter 15 -- "The Lost City." Although largely unknown to all but the most die hard movie buffs today, The Lost City is a landmark production in several ways. The first million dollar serial, it was also the first "jungle queen" picture, the first "lost city" movie, and the first motion picture to use actual wild animals in the action sequences (rumors that the movie was filmed on location in Africa, however, were purely the result of an overactive publicity campaign. The serial was actually shot at Los Angeles' Selig Polyscope Studios, using animals from the Selig zoo). Released in 15 exciting chapters, the serial stars Juanita Hansen, a lovely and popular actress of the day, and former Mack Sennett bathing beauty, whose wild lifestyle and tragic drug problems are the stuff of legend. Offered here is a gorgeous stone litho one sheet from the last chapter of this important production. There were two pieces missing from the center of the poster, one in the lower part of Hansen's face and the other in her stomach. There were pinholes in the corners, and minor chipping in the image area and borders, but professional restoration has expertly addressed all of these issues, resulting in a very presentable image. Good on Linen.
