i have a few Bessie Love lobby cards and photos but never imagined i'd ever get a twenties one sheet of hers
the seller said it was owned by harrison ford himself (not that one starwarsfans ;D) which is kind of cool
it was framed and had had its white border trimmed off but i won't be getting it a new border (or linen backed!)

Wow, Redman, that Rubber Tires sure is a rare treasure! A big congratulations are in order!  Bessie Love was such an important early actress.  It's a real pleasure too see. Very cool.  Okie

^thanks. yes, i want to read her biography but i don't fancy spending £100 on a book which is cheapest i have seen it for
this interview from seventies UK tv is worth a watch if you've not seen it
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=md3ljrggTaY
sadly it is too brief - she must be mid-70s at least and still looks great
(if youtube blocks this in USA but you would still like to see it just let me know)

I didn't know of her.  Thanks for sharing.  What a wonderfully positive outlook she had.

 Thanks for sharing the Bessie Love BBC interview, Redman.  I really liked her in The Lost World, especially.  Fun to hear her dad knew Tom Mix and the fates took over from there. I didn't know she had moved to England and worked in acting there later in life. Nice to learn new-old facts. Okie

I haven't bought many posters lately, it seems that there aren't a lot of opportunities these days.  I just received in the mail this Italian 2F for The Land Unknown, which has some fun graphics based on the original Reynold Brown artwork done for the US 1/2 sheet and 3-sheet.

Same here, Antoine.  It's been super dry lately.  I buy 1,000 posters a year on average, and unless I buy 400 posters in the next month, I'll be 400 posters short  ;)  It hasn't happened since I started collecting, some 19 years ago.  Obviously, there are no new movies out there, but even with the older stuff, there is nothing.  Sad.

Nice poster btw.

Since there are no posters to buy (a dry spell since the start of Covid), I decided to start collecting books hahaha...  And since I am a big Stephen King fan, I decided to start collecting all of his 1st editions.  I just started with Carrie and The Shining.  Man, true first printings arenít cheap.  Most are in the thousands.  This is an education, because I know nothing about it.  Itís going to be fun!

Anyone else collects books?  I know Antoine and Holiday do.

check out the "Stephen King Rare Editions" group on facebook and thedarktower.org. They are great sources of info on Stephen King collecting. I collect signed/numbered books from small press publishers (subterranean press, centipede press, etc).
