Vintage original 11 x 14 in. U.S. lobby card from the silent film Jazz Age drama, HIS CHILDREN'S CHILDREN, released in 1923 by Paramount Pictures and directed by Sam Wood.
Based upon the novel by Monte M. Katterjohn and Arthur Chesney Train, the image features an interior shot of the film's star, Bebe Daniels (as Diane), sitting on the arm of sofa as she recoils from the touch of Mr. Pepperill (Lawrence D'Orsay). During the early 1920's, Paramount utilized a great design style on most of their lobby cards that consisted of the use of abstract images and solid colors that are all very striking. It is unrestored in near-fine condition.
His Children's Children marked the film debut of Jack Oakie.


*"His Children's Children is a lost 1923 American silent drama film directed by Sam Wood and starring the winsome Bebe Daniels. It is based on a novel, His Children's Children by Arthur Train. Famous Players-Lasky produced and Paramount Pictures distributed the film."

*"Peter Kayne's great wealth exercises a baneful influence on his son, Rufus, and his three granddaughters, Claudia, Sheila, and Diana. Shortly before the "Old Pirate" dies, Rufus, through his association with a chorus girl named Mercedes, is blackmailed; Claudia marries a scoundrel; and Sheila becomes part of a fast-moving set of lounge lizards and flappers. Diana, the sensible daughter, rescues Sheila and marries Maitland, an idealistic young lawyer. While the old man is upstairs dying, his Fifth Avenue home and all its contents are being auctioned. Reviving sufficiently to come downstairs, he sees what is happening and falls dead, tearing from the wall a tapestry concealing the legend "Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it.""
