This early Japanese film poster, for the silent war romance, beautifully captures the essence of the film.

Exceptionally rare. This poster has only surfaced a few times.

This American silent war film was directed by William A. Wellman, stars Clara Bow, Charles Rogers and Richard Arlen. It tells the story of two men—one rich, one middle class—who fall in love with the same woman and both become fighter pilots in Word War I.
