    Lawless Love (Fox, 1918). Three Sheet (42" X 79.5").
    A Heritage first, this stone litho three sheet features Jewel Carmen in her role as a vaudeville artist stranded in Arizona with her dancing partner (Edward Hearn) when their troupe breaks up. In a scheme to raise money, she asks her partner to impersonate wanted outlaw "Black Jim" to collect the reward. Her plans are thwarted when the real outlaw shows up and kidnaps her. Based upon Western author Max Brand's first published work (1918) a novelette called Above the Law. Brand would later write more than 500 novels for magazines and almost as many short stories. This poster was printed by Alpha Litho, an early lithographer in New York that was used by several studios such as Triangle, Fox and Paramount. They appear to have gone out of the movie poster printing business by the late teens. The poster has impressive color saturation, and professional restoration has it ready to display. Professional restoration has addressed some tears in the lower panel, chips in the borders and folds, and has applied touchup to the folds. The vertical borders have been restored. Fine+ on Linen.
