An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Glass Slide (measures 3 1/4" x 4" [8 x 10 cm]) (Learn More)

Gilbert M. 'Broncho Billy' Anderson was a prolific American film-maker from the 1900s to the 1930s. He is considered to be the father of the movie cowboy and the first Western star, and is probably best know for directing and acting in the many 'Broncho Billy' short films. He was presented with an honorary Oscar in 1957 as a "motion picture pioneer, for his contributions to the development of motion pictures as entertainment." Some of his works include: The Weak-End Party, Broncho Billy's Cowardly Brother, and Alkali Ike's Pants. Anderson passed away in 1971 at the age of 90.
Important Added Info: Note that this slide is a little vague! It COULD be advertising a personal appearance by Broncho Billy Anderson, but more likely it is just purposely being deceptive, and solely announcing his upcoming movie, but written so that one might think that he might be there. The theater would put in the day or date in the first blank area, and then the name of the movie in the second blank area. Also note that glass slides were designed to be put in a special projector that would project the image onto a movie screen (they use exactly the same concept as 35mm slides). This slide is the kind that has two panes of glass that are taped together with black tape around all four edges (front and back), typical of many older glass slides. We have provided a high quality scan of the image, but we have not taken a photo of the slide, because there would really be very little to see!

Condition: good to very good. The slide has two blank areas that were intentional (see above). There is a small crack in the top left corner of the border of the glass, but otherwise, the slide is in pretty nice condition!
