    Description

    The White Sister (Metro, 1923). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    The storyline of F. Marion Crawford's novel was so popular that it was made into a film three times -- 1915, 1923, and again in 1933 starring Helen Hayes, Clark Gable, and Lewis Stone. This adaptation stars Lillian Gish as a woman who joins a convent after receiving false news that her true love (Ronald Colman) was killed at war. A Heritage first, this one sheet features two dramatic images of Gish in bold, well saturated stone litho colors. Paper from this film is quite rare, and this one sheet has had the benefit of restoration. The borders on the poster had been trimmed up to the image and were masterfully replaced. Touchup has been applied to pinholes in the top section, fold wear, several vertical creases, minor surface scratches and a small tear in the left yellow background. The poster now displays beautifully. Fine- on Linen.


    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
