About this Item

8vo, brochure, 4 pp. A scarce early movie promotion describing the plot of a long-forgotten silent film starring a now also forgotten star. The convoluted plot, a swashbuckling melodrama, is described over four pages, with several stills of the movie, and one might infer that this was an early full length movie. The fact that there was a program such as this is also suggestive that this film was regarded as a prestige production. The movie played at the "Chaplin Theatre", formerly the Russel, which was probably in Cleveland, although no city address is given. The renaming of the theater surely marks the meteoric rise of Charlie Chaplin, who had become an overnight movie sensation just a few months earlier. (He entered a contract with Mark Sennett in late 1913 and his first release occurred in early 1914.) There is no copy of the movie at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles.

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
