Unshredded Nostalgia, New Jersey's only metropolitan-style poster gallery showcasing original movie, television and stage posters, announces a rare poster exhibit featuring the era of silent movies. The exhibit titled “Gems of the Silent Screen Revisited,” opens to the public on June 19, with an opening night gala reception from 5-7 p.m.
Over 50 one-of-a-kind and rarely seen silent movie posters from 1914-1930 will be on display. The posters include Mark Twain's “A Connecticut Yankee,” Marion Davis in “Yolanda,” Norma Talmadge in “Going Straight” and Mack Sennett in “The Lion and the Souse.” Also featured will be such stars as: Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Lillian Gish and Tom Tyler.
“We are delighted that our gallery was chosen to display The 'Gems of the Silent Screen Revisited' exhibit,” says owner and silent movie buff Jim Episale. “While major museums have displayed silent movie posters, gallery showings are quite unique. We have been fortunate to house a number of diverse poster exhibits. We are pleased to add this exhibit to our repertoire.”
