BATTLING BUTLER (1926)

Vintage original 11 x 14” (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Buster Keaton, Sally O’Neill, Walter James, Budd Fine, Francis McDonald, Tom Wilson, Mary O’Brien, dir: Buster Keaton; MGM. Story of a resigned young man, Alfred Butler, who is sent on a hunting trip to make a man of, falls in love with a mountain girl and is introduced to her family as the “Battling” Butler, a known championship fighter. He must keep up the masquerade. This is one of Keaton’s finest works and this highly desirable card shows him with his trainer Tom Wilson. This is the key image from this classic sports comedy. Card is in original hand coloring; as was typical of early MGM cards, a delicate pastel color was used, and card is entirely unfaded. This is a very rare card.
