Vintage original 28 x 42 in. US one-sheet poster from the one-reel silent film comedy/drama, FAITHFUL, released in 1910 by the General Film Service, produced by the Biograph Company, and directed by D.W. Griffith.


The stone lithograph artwork depicts John Dobbs, AKA "Adonese" (Arthur V. Johnson) looking annoyed with his new and unwanted friend, Zeke, AKA "Faithful" (Mack Sennett), while he tries to woo his Sweetheart (Florence Barker) on a park bench . This is the only known example of this poster, which has been professionally linen-backed in fine condition with restoration to address only minor items in the folds and borders.


Faithful is very popular with fans of early Hollywood and its history, as it features an exterior scene taken where the Yamashiro restaruant now stands which looks south down upon what is now Franklin Avenue and the nearly-empty surrounding landscape. The house that is now home to the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) is clearly visible in the foreground.


*"The Biograph Company, also known as the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company, was a motion picture company founded in 1895 and active until 1916. It was the first company in the United States devoted entirely to film production and exhibition, and for two decades was one of the most prolific, releasing over 3000 short films and 12 feature films. During the height of silent film as a medium, Biograph was America's most prominent film studio and one of the most respected and influential studios worldwide, only rivaled by Germany's UFA, Sweden's Svensk Filmindustri and France's Pathé. The company was home to pioneering director D. W. Griffith and such actors as Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, and Lionel Barrymore."
