    Description

    His First Flame (Pathe', 1927). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Frank Capra started his career writing for the Mack Sennett studio and some of his most successful work was with the Sennett comedian Harry Langdon. Capra wrote this 48 minute feature and it was one of Langdon's standout comedies. The two developed a unique character of an innocent man-child who found himself in dramatic and hazardous circumstances with only providence and good luck making him come out on top. This character clicked with the public and Langdon enjoyed a streak of artistic and commercial successes using it with Capra's direction. Offered here is a very attractive stone litho poster featuring our unlikely hero. Very Fine.
