DescriptionPress Sheet for The Flying Ace, A 1926 "All Colored Cast" Silent Film released by Norman Studios in Arlington (Jacksonville), Florida. Starring Kathryn Boyd and Lawrence Criner, this six-reeler claimed to be "The Greatest Airplane Mystery Thriller Ever Produced." Offered here is a 44" x 28" foldover sent to potential exhibitors of the film. The front page is an exact reproduction of the window card in orange and blue ink featuring scenes from the movie. The inside back page is another poster, in blue monotone, also with graphics, but this one includes biographies of the principal actors. The rest of this advertising piece is addressed to the movie theatre owner encouraging them to show this film. This studio, operated by Richard Norman, made six feature films and many "shorts" during the 1920s. It was Norman's intention to portray blacks in a positive light, as heroes and lovers, and also to give black crewmembers good paying jobs. This rare piece of movie memorabilia and Black Americana is in fine condition, clean, with only minor edge tattering.
