Original Movie Poster Illustration, c.1929
Gouache on board
52in. x 19in. (sight size)
In this early "talkie" William Boyd, "the flying fool", fears that Pat, played by Marie Prevost, is giving the runaround to his brother Jimmy, played by Russell Gleason. When William Boyd takes Pat out to make sure that her intentions are honorable, naturally, he falls in love with her himself. Marie Prevost sings the theme song "If I Had My Way" twice in the movie. Three WW I Aces shoot down a Fokker DR-1 in this preliminary mock-up for a poster.
