    Description

    Theodora, the Slave Princess (Goldwyn, 1919). Six Sheet (81" X 81"). Filmed in Italy in 1919, this epic film starred a young Rita Jolivet as Theodora, the Roman slave girl and courtesan. The film tells the tale of the young girl's marriage to the Roman emperor Justinian and her ascension to the throne as Empress of Rome. But a love affair with a handsome Greek whom she meets in Byzantium leads to revolution and armed conflict in both Byzantium and Rome. The film was picked up by Goldwyn and released in the US in 1921. This gorgeous Tooker Litho six sheet is from that release and is probably the only one still in existence. This is one of the most impressive silent six sheets we have ever seen. Very Fine on Linen.
