$150.00

Vintage original 11 x 14″ (28 x 35 cm.) title lobby card, USA. May McAvoy, Lois Wilson, Elliott Dexter, George Fawcett, dir: William C. deMille; Paramount. Based on a Broadway play, this film told the story of Mrs. Stanley, who loses her clergyman husband. Mother of teenage twins, she decides to change her lifestyle, including her drab clothes, takes a job as a librarian, and even dances with an admirer at her childrens’ high school dance. The conservative children eventually learn that their selfishness is standing in the way of their mother’s happiness, her being only 38-years-old. Undoubtedly a lost film. Interestingly, school teacher-turned-actress Lois Wilson, who played the role at the age of 29, was just 5-years-older than both stars May McAvoy and Robert Agnew, who played the twins. In this highly romantic image from the Golden Age of silent cinema we have Lois Wilson with Elliott Dexter as the Professor. There is a lot of writing on back of card in pencil, which does not show through, and card is otherwise immaculate, NEAR FINE.
