    Description

    The Man Who Was Afraid (Essanay, 1917). Folded, Fine+. One Sheet (28" X 42").
    Bryant Washburn is branded as a coward when his mother refuses to let him serve alongside others in the National Guard during World War I. Washburn eventually proves himself, however, when he volunteers for a mission along the Mexican border in this silent war drama. Signs of age include edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, light creases, and minor tears. There is a bit of chipping at the top and bottom edges, some faint foxing, and unobtrusive smudges. The poster has toning and mild brittleness. Folded, Fine+.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
