This is a magic lantern "coming attraction" slide projected on the screen of a theater during intermission to advertise a feature film which would be appearing soon. It reads, "Warner Bros. presents DEARIE, starring Irene Rich, with William Collier Jr., Anders Randolph, Richard Tucker. Directed by Archie Mayo. A Warner Bros. Production." It was filmed in 1927 and no copies of this film remain in existence. Born in 1891, silent-screen femme Irene Rich came from a once well-to-do family in Buffalo, New York. Her father faced a reversal of fortune while she was quite young and they subsequently moved to California. Following her education, Irene pursued a career as a realtor. She had already married twice by the time she decided to become an actress and, by the "ripe old age" of 27, had begun working as a movie extra. Success came quickly for Irene and her first part of real substance was in The Girl in His House (1918). She continued on as a poised, resourceful co-star and became a particular favorite of Will Rogers, who used her in Water, Water, Everywhere (1920/I), The Strange Boarder (1920), Jes' Call Me Jim (1920), Boys Will Be Boys (1921) and _The Ropin' Fool (1921)_. Her array of leading men went the gamut -- from Harry Carey in Desperate Trails (1921) to Lon Chaney in The Trap (1922) to John Barrymore in Beau Brummel (1924) to movie mutt Strongheart the Dog in Brawn of the North (1922). Irene's true screen persona, however, arrived in the form of tearjerkers, nobly portraying the ever-suffering, well-coiffed "doormat" in her own plush, domestic dramas. Somewhat reminiscent in both looks, style and demeanor to Irene Dunne, she became a favorite in women's pictures throughout the 1920s, one of her best known roles being in Lady Windermere's Fan (1925). With age Irene moved into more motherly types, and by the coming of sound she was frequently playing Will Rogers' pushy wife in a few of his social comedies, including So This Is London (1930) and Down to Earth (1932). At around the same time Irene enjoyed a spectacular new career on radio. In 1933 she began her nationwide anthology program entitled "Dear John" (also called "The Irene Rich Show") which lasted over a decade. Her leading man on that show for many of those years was Gale Gordon, who later played Lucille Ball's apoplectic nemesis on 1960s TV. Irene also enjoyed some success on stage in such productions as "Seven Keys to Baldpate" (1935), which starred George M. Cohan. Eventually she left it all, marrying a fourth time to businessman George Henry Clifford in 1950 and settling in comfortable retirement. She died at age 96 peacefully of heart failure and was survived by two daughters -- one of whom, Frances Rich, was an actress briefly on the 1930s stage and screen before becoming a noted sculptor. Slide is glass with a cardboard frame and overall size is 3 1/4" x 4". At the bottom is a space where the projectionist could write in grease pencil when or where the movie would be appearing before showing it on the screen. PLEASE NOTE that someone in the past scraped off this information , probably with a razor blade, so that part of the emulsion is gone. Slides were usually rented from the company which released the film and destroyed after a relatively short period of use. For some early films, a "coming attraction" slide is all that remains of the movie. Colors are bright and condition is very good except for the part at the bottom. It can be viewed by projecting, holding it to the light, or placing it on a light box. This slide can be made into a print or poster. If you would like information on having that done AFTER you purchase the view, please let me know. To learn more about magic lanterns and slides go to www.magiclanternsociety.org. I offer a reduced postage amount for multiple items IF you email for the cost. Please remember to do this otherwise you will overpay. If this is an overseas purchase unless it is a single lantern slide, I may not have the postage correct. Please wait until I send the invoice before you pay to be sure that the postage is correct. I mail on Tuesdays and Fridays. Thanks for your business, Bob Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
