#CH079 - Ken Maynard Trick Rope in Original Cellophane Package
Vintage 1940's Ken Maynard toy TRICK ROPE in original package. 11" wide package says "toy trick rope - with the patented embedded swivel". These are in their original cellophane packaging (which is quite brittle and has tears), but the card and rope are in perfect condition. Even has a fake autograph on it. The patent number on the card is from the mid 1930s, however, guaging by how old he looks in the picture, I'd guess they are from around 1940. With his white cowboy hat, fancy shirt, and pair of six-shooters, Maynard appeared in more than 90 films from the 1920s to the mid-1940s before his career was ended by alcoholism. This was a warehouse find, but it wasn't huge and these won't be around forever. Trick ropes were sold by a lot of cowboy movie stars during this time period and usually go for $100 or more. This is a great item.

#CH384.1  - Charlie Chaplain Silent Movie Handbill - Fall of Babylon

OK guys. Something like this is uncommon. Vintage Charlie Chaplain items like this are nearly impossible to find. They came out of an old theatre in Brooklyn, NY. They are 11" tall thin paper handbills that they passed out in front of the theater to attact customers. It advertises D. W. Griffith's The Fall of Babylon which was made in 1919, so that is the time period these are from. It shows the second feature was Charlie Chaplan's comedy "Carman" which was made in 1917. This was the era of the silent movie and so it says "music throughout the entire show". What that means is that some guy played the organ while you watched the silent movies. This is a very good piece and we are proud to be able to offer it. These are the only examples we've ever seen. We bought them right and so are passing them on at an amazing price.

#ZZA156 - Pacific Ocean Park 1¢ Arcade Hopalong Cassidy Bill Boyd Card
This is a very rare Ocean Park Penny Arcade 4 in 1 card featuring Hopalong Cassidy (Bill Boyd who played Hopalong) with a signature on the upper left. Excellent unused condition. This is a cool card. It also has Buster Crabbe with a signature on the lower right. Ocean Park was built in Santa Monica, CA in 1958 and closed in 1967. It was a very large park that was built to compete with Disneyland. However, city planners, in an effort to renew the area, demolished buildings and closed streets all around the park so people couldn't find there way in. Even though it was a huge park, it was forced to close it's doors and the contents were auctioned off in 1968. These cards are marked "Pacific Ocean Park Arcade 1¢" on the front and have a postcard back.

#CH326-10 - Rochester in "What's Buzzin' Cousin?" Movie Poster Broadside
Vintage 13" tall paper movie poster/broadside from the 1943 movie "What's Buzzin' Cousin?".  "Rochester" was well known as the Butler on the Jack Benny Radio Show where he became the first African American to have a regular role on a Nationwide radio program. Ann Miller got top billing in this movie, but Rochester was the big draw. It says "Rochester's Clowning is good for the funny bone", and he is wearing a butler outfit in the picture. Please click the picture to see a more detailed image. Back in the day, when a new movie was going to play at the local theatre, there would be a guy who would run around town tacking these things on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived. Some will have small edge tears or roughness, but this is true of all paper movie broadsides, and they can easily be trimmed for framing. Although, a few small imperfections kind of adds to the look with these. Colors vary. We got them from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist. He found them in the storage area of an old theatre up in Northeast Ohio.
