An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh; measures 28 1/4" x 41" [72 x 104 cm]) (Learn More)

Little Annie Rooney, the 1925 William Beaudine silent New York City romantic juvenile street kids crime mystery melodrama (about a 12 year old girl who is a tough street kid in a poor neighborhood, and her father is a cop, and a street gang moves in the neighborhood, and her father is shot, and word spreads that a boy she liked was the shooter, and her brother shoots that boy, but it turns out he didn't do it, and she goes to the hospital and gives a blood transfusion that saves the boy's life!) starring Mary Pickford (in the title role as Little Annie Rooney), William Haines, Walter James, Gordon Griffith, Carlo Schipa, and Spec O'Donnell. Note that Pickford was convincing as a 12 year old girl, even though she was 32 when this movie was made. She had been trying hard to get to play non-juvenile rules (and who could blame her?), but the two adult roles she had taken had not done well at the box office. She had to find another movie where she was a juvenile, and she chose the 1889 music hall song "Little Annie Rooney" as the basis for her character in this movie. The song was still popular in 1925, and it not only inspired this movie, but also, after the movie, it inspired a long-running comic strip!

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster had some partial extra folds. It had tiny tears and tiny bits of paper loss on the folds in the bottom title and credits area, with a lesser amount of wear on the folds in the image area. It had stains and tears around the edges, with some paper loss in the upper left and right white borders. It had tears, stains, and some paper loss scattered in the top border, with some of the tears extending into the top of the image. Overall, the poster was in good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects.
