 1919 The Busher Russian Film Poster  

Click photo to Enlarge

Item Description
This 28x42" movie poster was created for the Russian release of the 1919 baseball movie "The Busher". The film stars actor Charles Ray as small-town baseball player Ben Harding, who, after a chance encounter with the championship Minneapolis Pink Sox, proves his talents and is asked to join the ball club as a pitcher. Harding promises his friends and family that he will return, but the success he experiences turns him into a conceited snob who ignores his loved ones when they come to watch him play. The poster depicts Harding at bat and has a eye-catching yellow and green color scheme with bold Russian text. "The Busher" was one of the few early films to be shown in Russia, as the leaders of the Communist Revolution used the film to show citizens how capitalism corrupts the soul. A fascinating EX-MT piece of early film history.
