BLACK PANTHER'S CUB, THE (1921)
Ziegfeld Cinema Corp. / Equity Pictures 1921 - Vintage original 22 x 28" (55 x 70 cm.) half sheet poster, USA. Florence Reed, Norman Trevor, Henry Stephenson, Don Merrifield, dir: Emile Chautard; Ziegfeld Cinema Corporation/Equity Pictures. This tale (based on the Algernon Charles Swinburne poem "Faustine") told of the daughter of a gambling hall hostess who, when down on her luck, impersonates her mother and reopens the palace. For one brief moment, Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr.'s younger brother, William, decided to invest in a film production company. He presented this one film starring premier Broadway actress Florence Reed (and a cast of New York theatre actors), after which there were no more films. Likely the "quarter of a million dollar production" did not make profits. The Art Nouveau presentation and various fashions Florence displays (she played three roles) make for a charming poster. Unfolded, there is just a bit of soiling in the blank white margins. NEAR FINE
