DescriptionThe Paleface (First National, 1922). CGC Graded Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
A card Keaton fans have waited for, this full color, hand stenciled title card comes from one of Buster Keaton's best comedy shorts. Keaton crammed more terrific sight gags into this twenty minute short than a Saturday afternoon Warner Brothers cartoon festival. That's an antique Navajo rug Buster is draped in, complete with a symbol found in many cultures, but used by the Navajo to represent a "whirling log," a sacred symbol used in healing rituals. In just a few years when the Navajo learned the Nazis were using the symbol, they discontinued it completely. Very rare and only offered once before, this card has received a grade of 7.0 from CGC. Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
