$1,500.00

[Los Angeles]: Paramount Artcraft Pictures, [1920]. Vintage original 22 x 28″ (56 x 71 cm.) half sheet poster, This poster was backed with archival conservation paper; at the time, various primarily marginal tears and wear to the extreme edges were conserved, overall very good-.

This was the third of three feature films directed for Paramount by William Desmond Taylor, whose 1922 murder remains one of the most famous Hollywood scandals (and unsolved mysteries). Lewis Sargent and Gordon Griffith portrayed Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer.

This was the first screen adaptation of Mark Twain’s novel. Many would follow. This is an exceedingly scarce poster — the only one which I have ever seen, and, in fact, the only poster in any format which I have ever known to exist.
