    Description

    The Cold Deck (S. A. Lynch, 1917). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    William S. Hart was the top money-making cowboy star of the early twentieth century film industry. Offered in this lot is one of two styles to this famous horse opera shot just before the outbreak of WWI. One style of this poster features William S. Hart playing cards and is exceedingly rare and is well-known as was used on a Portal Publications reprint done in the late 1960s.. This equally rare original States Rights release poster features Hart and Mildred Harris (she married Charlie Chaplin a year after this film, when she was only 17). Harris plays the sickly sister of Hart, and here they both weep and pray, not only for her health, but for Hart's clearance after being accused of murder. Traingle was the studio releasing Hart's films at the time this film was made but Lynch was a States Rights distributor who ran the film in areas throughout the country at the same time. Top of the line linenbacking has this supreme rarity ready to proudly display. There has been some expert touch-up for mild edge wear, corner pinholes, and some missing paper in the bottom left corner. Early Hart posters are very scarce as they are some of the earliest posters produced for theatrical distribution. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
