by [African American Filmmaking]: Norman, Richard: [filmmaker]
[Jacksonville, FL]: Norman Studios, 1928. Single-sheet, double-sided herald (4½ x 7"). Theatrical stamp in appropriate place, otherwise about fine. Silent filmmaker Richard Norman was among the first to make "race films" in America, and this herald promotes his final film before the advent of "talkies." Shot with an "All Colored Cast," the film featured Kathryn Boyd, Lawrence Criner, Steve "Peg" Reynolds, "L.B. Tatums and the entire All-Colored City of Tatums, Oklahomo [sic]." Reynolds would perform 15-minute Vaudeville skits before many of the studio's films were screened, and this advertisement states "Steve is here, TONITE." A large remainder of Norman film promotional paper has significantly increased the current availability of posters and heralds that otherwise would be presumed perishable and scarce.
