Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Henry Walthall, Elmer Clifton, Lillian Gish, dir: D.W. Griffith. Not a single lobby card has ever surfaced from this very important film's original release, and many advanced collectors believe that there were no lobby cards made for that original release of 1915; until such a time (if ever) that a 1915 lobby card is produced, cards from this -- the film's first re-release -- are the earliest known to exist. and they also are very difficult to find. Two different sets of cards were produced for this 1921 release: one on flat paper, and one on a textured, enameled paper -- this card is from that textured set. It shows the historic reenactment of Robert E. Lee (Howard Gaye) surrendering to Ulysses Grant (Donald Crisp) at Appomattox. The card has a small marginal tear in right blank margin, two long diagonal creases, and some marginal creasing and a few minor scratches -- none of which is terribly obtrusive, since you have to hold the card up to the light to actually see them, and the overall appearance of this rare card is quite pleasing.
