An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Three-Sheet Movie Poster (Learn More)

Carmen, the 1915 Cecil B. DeMille silent Spain war-time military doomed love romantic melodrama ("A picturization of the immortal masterpiece"; based on the novella written in 1845 by Prosper Merimee, which was adapted into an opera by Georges Bizet in 1875; about a Spanish soldier who falls under the spell of a gypsy woman and his obsession eventually leads himself to ruin) starring Geraldine Farrar (billed as "The incomparable Metropolitan Opera star"; in the title role as Carmen), Wallace Reid (as Don Jose), Pedro de Cordoba, Horace B. Carpenter, William Elmer, and Jeanie Macpherson. Note that while Cecil D. DeMille was making this version, Raoul Walsh was making a competing version with Theda Bara and Walsh's version was released first. Charlie Chaplin made fun of the "duelling Carmens" in his "Burlesque on Carmen", also released in 1915. There were three more silent Carmens and there have been many sound versions as well. Note also that Wallace Reid was a major star of the early 1910s, who fell in love with Dorothy Davenport, who was a young starlet. He married her, and they made many movies together in the middle 1910s, marrying in 1913. In 1917, Davenport had their son, and she made few movies after the birth of her son, but he remained a top star. In 1919, Wallace Reid was making a movie "The Valley of the Giants", and he was injured, and took morphine to enable him to finish filming. He became a major drug addict, and made 24 movies over the next 3 years, but died in 1923 at the age of 31, and it is unclear exactly how large a part drugs and alcohol played in his death, but certainly this was one of the first great Hollywood drug scandals. The following year, Davenport produced "Human Wreckage", an expose of Hollywood and drugs, billed as "Mrs. Wallace Reid", and she made a total of six movies after "Human Wreckage", always billed the same way. In 1934, she retired and she died in 1977 at the age of 82.
