Vintage original 8 x 10 in. US textured stock "artwork style" lobby card from the 1920's WWI-themed silent film war drama, SHE GOES TO WAR, released in 1929 by United Artists and directed by Henry King.
United Artists chose to issue an 8 x 10 in. lobby card set that was printed on a textured paper stock and featured full-color artwork as opposed to photographic images. As indicated by the signature in the upper left corner, the artwork was designed by Charles W. Pancoast and depicts star Eleanor Boardman (as American Joan Morant) entertaining the troops. It is unrestored in near-fine condition.
*"Small town social leader Joan Morant, who holds herself aloof from the "common people," is thrilled when wartime activity strikes her community, and enlisting the support of her uncle, a congressman, she obtains an assignment overseas. Although she loves Reggie, a wealthy sheik, Joan plays with the affections of Pike, a local garage owner, both of whom she meets in France. Tom Pike, transformed by his war experiences, rebuffs Joan's advances, and she seeks out Reggie, who is living his accustomed life of luxury as a supply sergeant. Joan's female companions, constantly making great sacrifices, impress upon her the seriousness of purpose in her work, and she resolves to do her part. When Reggie, called to the front, becomes hopelessly drunk, she dons his uniform and replaces him in the ranks, where she experiences a new admiration and love for Tom, her commander. Proving her heroism in battle, she returns to Tom, worthy of his love."
