Destruction

Now we can see one of the posters for the 1915 Theda Bara movie Destruction. There even is a chance to own this coming up, courtesy of Last Moving Picture Company and Cinevent at the 21st Annual Hollywood Poster Auction on May 25, part of Cinevent in Columbus Ohio.

--Theda_Bara-1915-11-Destruction-000p--

The film is based on Emile Zola's novel Labor. As you can see from the phrase on the poster, the wife of the plant owner wants more money and means to lower the wages of the workers to get it!

It has been very difficult to find any stills or publicity for this movie and I would expect this poster to be unique after almost 100 years.

I understand the reserve price for this poster is $2000, which seems reasonable considering how rare it is...or anything related to this movie is!
