FLAMING CRISIS, THE (1924) Prison cell ghost variant poster

$3,500.00

[New York]: Monarch Productions, [1924]. Vintage original 42 x 28 1/2″ (107 x 72 cm.) poster, conserved on linen, with minor touch ups, NEAR FINE, with bright colors.

THE FLAMING CRISIS was the only film produced by Monarch, an African American film production company based in New York City. For this film, they produced two entirely different one sheet posters; one with horseracing imagery and this one, in which the hero is confronted by a ghost in his prison cell. Since this dramatic image has to be one of the very earliest surviving Black cast film posters with a horror/supernatural motif, this poster is of unusual interest.
