DescriptionThe Wizard of Oz (Fribergs Filmbrya, 1925). Swedish One Sheet (22.5" X 35") Bjornberg Artwork.
With its charming drawing of the Scarecrow (popular silent film comedian Larry Semon, who also directs this film) and the Lion (Spencer Bell), this very rare Swedish one sheet from the first and only 1920s adaptation of L. Frank Baum's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is an absolute boon for fans of this heartwarming tale. Posters for this film adaptation are almost non-existent in the poster collecting community! Oliver Hardy co-stars as the Tin Man, as does Dorothy Dwan as Dorothy and Charlie Murray as the Wizard. Well preserved, this poster shows only slight edge wear and a small tear at the top border. Rolled, Very Fine/Near Mint.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
