Movie Advertisements

Title

Movie Advertisements

Description

A sampling of an artists' movie advertisement portfolio with notes.

Several questions are raised by this document. Who exactly created it? Was it the same person who wrote the margin notes? Who was it created for? The artist of of the advertisements could very well have been Frank Eisenberg himself as a few of the ads mention theaters, like the New Garrick, that were owned by the theater moguls he worked for, Finkelstien and Ruben. Frank could have also been the one writing in the notes of explanation for the audience reviewing it, or perhaps the collection of work was presented to Frank as examples for a future hire.

The films advertised in the document are all releases from the year 1919, and this sampling provides a good picture of the types of movies that were popular in the Twin Cities that year.
