Vintage BROADWAY PLAY PROGRAMS Capitol National Theatre Theater
A collection of 3 Broadway plays,
performed in 1926 at the Capitol Theatre and the National Theatre.
We are pleased to offer these rare
programs from three Broadway plays in 1926. From the famouse
National Theatre on 41st Street in New York, the program serves
the American Melodrama 'Yellow' which, among other things, features
Spencer Tracy in a prefame role as a bank clerk. Tracy would
go on to become one of Hollywood's great icons starting only
4 years later.
The other two programs, from the Capitol
Theatre in New York, feature such well-known names as Lionel
Barrymore, Greta Garbo, and Rudolph Valentino. The programs
were made for Broadway productions of 'The Temptress,' and 'The
Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.' And, like the National program,
have a wide variety of period advertising.
The larger program (from the National)
measures 5 1/4 X 7 3/4 inches, while the two identical Capitol
programs measure 5 X 7 inches. Together, the programs weigh
These programs date from 1926, and
as such have a wear one would expect with items of this age.
There is foxing around the edges, some yellowing, and the covers
are coming loose, but are still held by the saddle stitching.
For collectors of old Broadway productions
to producers and playwrights, this lot is a great buy!
