    Description

    The Tiger's Shadow (Pathé, 1928). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 40.5") Chapter 5 -- "The Gas Chamber."
    Little is known about this intriguing silent serial. It was directed by Spencer Gordon Bennett, one of the most prolific serial directors in the history of the genre, who had previously helmed the 10-chapter Hawk of the Hills, and would go on to make such serial classics as The Secret Code, G-Men vs. the Black Dragon, Superman, Batman and Robin, and The Masked Marvel, to name just a few. The Tiger's Shadow was apparently an example of an early breed of serial that featured women in the leading roles - Gladys McConnell, in this instance - a concept Bennett would revive in 1944 with The Tiger Woman, starring Linda Stirling, and would go on to exploit with great success in such memorable later chapterplays as Zorro's Black Whip, Daughter of Don Q, and The Black Widow. Light partial touchup has been applied to the folds, mild creases, pinholes, and some small tears and chips. Some of these issues are still visible, as are unobtrusive stains and smudges. The linen has been trimmed to the edges, extending slightly into the side borders with a few thin slivers of paper loss.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
