    Trailing the Counterfeiter (Biograph Studios, 1911). One Sheet (27.75" X 41").
    Biograph Studios was the training ground for many later film directors and stars. This early short subject stars comedy director and producer Mack Sennett, later of Keystone Studios fame, seen second from left. To the right of him with pipe in mouth facing the wrath of a policeman (Alfred Paget) is Fred Mace who would become a major actor in the Keystone comedies and most famous in the Keystone Kops. This very rare poster, the only copy that we are aware of, is a bit of cinema history as this was also directed by a young Sennett, only his 30th credit out of a career of over 300 short films. Professional conservation has addressed slight touchup to the folds and scattered pinholes into the background. There were some tiny chips and tears in the borders and folds. This poster is as bright as the day it was printed. Very Fine- on Linen.
