An Original Vintage Theatrical Folded Russian Movie Poster (measures 28 1/2" x 39 1/2" [72 x 100 cm]) (Learn More)

The Mark of Zorro, the 1920 Fred Niblo silent south-of-the-border masked-hero western adventure thriller ("From the 'All Story Weekly' novel 'The Curse of Capistrano' by Johnston McCulley") starring Douglas Fairbanks (in the title role as Zorro), Marguerite De La Motte, Robert McKim, Noah Beery Sr., Charles Hill Mailes, and Claire McDowell. It is interesting to note that this was the very first Zorro movie ever, and that Zorro, created in a pulp story in 1919, was the very first masked superhero ever!

Artist: Iosif Gerasimovich
Important Added Info: The art on this poster is by Iosif Gerasimovich, a noted Russian artist of the 1920s who worked with the Stenberg brothers and other designers from The Constructivist Period. Also, note that Russian movie posters from the 1920s are incredibly rare. Not only is this from one of the most important movies of 1920, but it also has a wonderful artwork image of Douglas Fairbanks in his Zorro outfit! Also note that this poster was folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube.

UPDATED 06/05/2015: Note that we have updated the Artist information and the Important Added Info section.

Condition: good to very good. The poster has some creases and scuffs on the foldlines. The theater that used the poster stenciled play dates in the upper left and upper right background area. It has some stains and tears around the edges, with small paper loss in the left corners. It is likely that a restorer can remove some or all of the stenciled play dates through chemical means, and after a simple linenbacking, the poster will look great!
