Movie poster from the 1920s


This poster from around 1926 advertises the Cecil B. De Mille-produced film Feet of clay, which is billed as ‘the real story of the married flapper’ and a ‘gorgeous ultra-modern love-drama’. During the 1920s New Zealanders flocked to cinemas to watch screen stories of romance and adventure, most of them American-made.
