First Annual Actors' Equity Carnival Program 1929


This is an item I've had on the blog before.  It was relisted on ebay, and this time the pictures are clearer. Note that not all of these people were in silent movies as this says.

 last page is promo for a kennel, picturing a german shepherd dog. the program is in very nice condition, esp when considering its age/fragile nature. some wear/damage that includes - tear on bottom edge of binding. tip crease that goes into 1st pg. a few edge tears. 1st pg has some red bleeding, but the image of sam hardy (director general) is terrific. back cover is a little separated from contents but is attached. back cover has some scratches, edge tears, corner creases. wonderful silent movie item."
