Description

    Under the Yoke (Fox, 1918). One Sheet (27" X 42").
    Based on the short story Maria of the Roses, by George Scarborough, this film stars Theda Bara as a young Spanish woman recently departed from her education in a convent who joins her father in colonial Philippines. She spurns the attentions of the plantation overseer (G. Raymond Nye), who in turn incites an insurrection among the natives. An American Army captain (Albert Roscoe) comes to her aid. Bara was one of the most popular movie stars of the silent era, ranking behind only Charlie Chaplin and Mary Pickford. She made forty films in total between 1914 and 1926 and earned $4,000 per week at the height of her fame. Under the Yoke is considered a lost film, making this entrancing and rarely seen one sheet an even more important find. Bara's dark beauty is enhanced by the stone litho artwork that depicts her bejeweled and finely dressed. Touchup to the folds, small chips in the borders, small tears in Bara's cheek, and small paper loss at the bottom crossfold. Very Fine- on Linen.
