Vintage original 8 x 10 in. US single-weight glossy photograph from the 1920's WWI-themed silent film comedy, TIN HATS, released in 1926 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) and directed by Edward Sedgwick.


The image features an interior scene inside of a castle as Elsa von Bergen (Claire Windsor) is encircled by Jack Benson (Conrad Nagel, center), "Dutch" Krausmeyer (Bert Roach, left) and "Lefty" Mooney (George Cooper, right) as the men protect her during a battle with a ghost in ancestral armor. On the right side of the verso is the original printed caption that describes the scene. It is in very fine- condition.


*"At Armistice time, three members of the A. E. F. become separated from their regiment attempting to retrieve some souvenirs. Looking for their company, they cycle into a Rhenish village and are accepted by the burgomaster as the new overlords. Jack Benson takes an interest in Elsa von Bergen, a wealthy aristocrat; and another personable girl becomes enamored of hard-boiled Lefty Mooney. With his friends, Jack invades Elsa's castle with the intention of "rescuing" her from some danger. She arranges a welcome with mysterious doors, traps, and other surprises, culminating in a battle with a ghost in ancestral armor. The trio are arrested, but through Elsa's influence they are released and the couples are happily married."
