THE STORY:

This year our Motion Picture Stills Archivist Nancy Kauffman has selected a beautiful and rare one sheet (27” x 41”) lithographic poster advertising THE SILENT WITNESS (1917) for conservation. This vivid image requires spot cleaning, washing and mounting on archival rice paper. We are still doing research into the film itself, but we have discovered that the Museum does have an unpreserved 16mm print of the film! With your support, the 95 years young poster of THE SILENT WITNESS will be able to be displayed for the public once again.

UPDATE: We smashed through our goal of $725 to conserve THE SILENT WITNESS (1917) poster so we've added a second poster. This one - ARE PARENTS PEOPLE? (1925) - is also a rare and very fragile one sheet (27” x 41”) , but one that has been sorely misused prior to its arrival at GEH. You can see from the photos that it has missing sections, tears, pin marks and the tell-tale residue of scotch tape - the bane of any poster. ARE PARENTS PEOPLE? will require a bit more work and so our goal is higher: $1120. This will pay for the spot cleaning, washing, mounting on archival rice paper and some repairs. Including the $725 for THE SILENT WITNESS our total goal now is $1,845! And from the looks of the current tally, we are nearly there!
