Vintage original 27 x 41 in. US one-sheet poster from the 1920's silent film adventure drama/romance, THE EAGLE, released in 1925 by United Artists and directed by Clarence Brown.


This poster was printed for the film's 1930's US theatrical re-release by Astor Pictures Corp., which featured a synchronized music and effects track. The design features a beautiful close shot of Rudolph Valentino in costume as the the handsome Russian Lt. Vladimir Dubrovsky. Just like the original 1925 release poster, this one-sheet is also a stone lithograph and was also printed by Morgan Litho Corp. of Cleveland, OH, so it features very fine detail and beautiful, rich colors.


This particular example is especially desirable, as it was never folded and is rolled. It is in fine+ condition with random signs of wear along the right border; light creasing on the top right and bottom left corners; and a light 7 in. diagonal crease on the bottom right corner. There are no pinholes, tears, stains, writing, or other flaws and the stone litho colors are fresh and vibrant with no signs of fading.


*"The Eagle is a 1925 American silent drama film directed by Clarence Brown and starring Rudolph Valentino, Vilma Bánky, and Louise Dresser. Valentino's last few films had not been particularly well received, but The Eagle proved a strong comeback for him, gaining good reviews from the critics and a success at the box-office - although it was not as successful as his next movie, Son of the SheikThe Eagle is remembered for its extended tracking shotof the food-laden table in the banquet scene.


Based on the posthumously published 1841 novel Dubrovsky by Alexander Pushkin, the film is about a lieutenant in the Russian army who catches the eye of Czarina Catherine II. After he rejects her advances and flees, she puts out a warrant for his arrest, dead or alive. When he learns that his father has been persecuted and killed, he dons a black mask and becomes an outlaw. Black Eagle does not exist in the novel and was inspired by the performance of Douglas Fairbanks as Zorro in The Mark of Zorro."

Based upon the 1832 novel, Dubrowski, by Alexander Pushkin, *"a wanted Russian lieutenant becomes a masked vigilante seeking vengeance upon the man who stole his family's land, only to fall for his charming daughter."
