    Description

    West is West (Universal, 1920). Title Lobby Card and Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Harry Carey was one of the first and brightest stars of the Western film genre. By the time this feature was made in 1920, he had already appeared in some 125 films. He formed a working relationship with John Ford by convincing Universal head, Carl Laemmle, to hire the youngster as a director. Beginning in 1917 until they had a falling-out in 1920, they worked together almost exclusively. Carey would continue making movies until his death in 1947. This fabulous title card and scene card are from Carey's starring days with Universal. Interestingly, to show how big of a star Carey was, the director is listed as being "under the supervision of Harry Carey." The title card has one pinhole in the upper center border. The scene card has one pinhole in the upper center image just at the bottom of the green border. Both cards are exceptionally clean with the most minor corner wear. Very Fine.
