Theatrical Poster “Going Some” 1909 SOLD AP106

Advertising Poster “Going Some”, “a comedy in four acts by Paul Armstrong and Rex Beach (being a chronicle of a certain lot of college men and girls, with a tragic strain of phonograph and cowboys)”, 1909 stage comedy. Made by The Metropolitan Print Co. NY.

Rex Beach, the author of the subsequent novel (“Going Some: A Romance Of Strenuous Affection”) and co-author of the play that suggested it, is now best remembered as the author of “The Spoilers” (made and remade no less than four times as a movie), while Paul Armstrong, his collaborator, had an equally successful career in the theater (“Alias Jimmy Valentine” and others). Early 20th century American popular entertainment served straight up, without a twist. Really delightful.
