Old Ironsides, the 1926 James Cruze silent American-fighting-ship-battling-Barbary-pirates-in-the-Mediterranean romantic adventure melodrama ("A stirring story of the sea.... The most costly film made thus far."; "The thrill of a lifetime"; "Story by Laurence Stallings"; about the famous U.S. battleship, The Constitution, that was nicknamed "Old Ironsides"; the movie is a highly fictionalized account of the Battle of Tripoli Harbor, where pirates captured American ships and took them prisoners; the famous phrase "Millions for defense, but not one cent for tribute" is often falsely attributed to this confrontation, and while it wasn't said at that time, the sentiment applies) starring Charles Farrell, Esther Ralston, Wallace Beery, George Bancroft, and Charles Hill Mailes

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: very good to fine. the poster was linenbacked; prior to linenbacking the poster had stains and smudges in the top blank area, and this area has been neatly painted over (I don't think most people would realize this unless it was specifically told to them); the image area had many faint scuffs throughout, but they were minimized during the linenbacking process, and are really only noticeable when the poster is turned to the light
