Description

This 1925 Olympia Theatre broadside promotes famed director John Ford's The Fighting Heart. While the film itself has long been considered to be lost, the offered ad lives on in brilliant color. Advertising the silent production, this 13-1/2 x 21-3/4" thick stock relic depicts George O'Brien as felled boxer (in this scene, anyway) Denny Bolton and the sultry Billie Dove as Doris Anderson. The piece is affected by a series of small holes and two small tears along the right edge. These flaws were almost certainly incurred long ago during display.
