Vintage original 28 x 42 in. British stone lithograph poster from the two-reel silent film drama, FATE, released in 1913 by the General Film Company, produced by the Biograph Company, and directed by D.W. Griffith.


The artwrok depicts Slim Sloane (Charles Hill Mailes) pouring a cup of moonshine for his neighbor, the Young Mother (Mae Marsh) while another man rests on a chair. This poster is a stone lithograph, which features bold, rich colors and very fine detail. It was printed for the film's original theatrical release in the UK and the artwork is identical to that of the US one-sheet poster. It has been professionally linen-backed in very fine condition.


*"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."
