The Pride of the Clan (Artcraft, 1917). Three Sheet (41" X 81"). One of the brightest stars of the silent age, Mary Pickford was, truly, "America's Sweetheart." Her marriage to Douglas Fairbanks in 1916 was the stuff of legend, and cemented her position as the "Queen of Hollywood." By 1917, when "Pride of the Clan" was made, Pickford was one of the nation's biggest stars, although many of her best roles were still ahead of her. The image presented on this glorious three sheet depicts a young woman who had the world at her feet, and whose star would only grow brighter in the years to come. In "Pride of the Clan," directed by frequent collaborator Maurice Tourneur, Mary plays Marget MacTavish, who assumes the role of clan leader when her father dies at sea. The film is lavish and lush, alternately amusing and heartwarming, and can be seen today as a precursor to such films as "Braveheart" and "Rob Roy." This gorgeous stone litho three sheet, the only one of its kind known to exist, displays some pinholes at the upper left, a slight tape lift and small holes at the lower right, and a small hole at the left border, as well as a small bit of paper loss in the "R" in "Pickford." A fairly sizable piece has been lost from the upper right solid color area, but this has been so expertly repaired as to be virtually unnoticeable. It should be noted that the image of Pickford is immaculate, making this a true prize for any collector of classic cinema. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
