n the early movie days, exhibit cards were the medium for enthusiasts to collect and the studios used to promote their upcoming movies and popular stars. The cards were obtained from arcade vending machines for a penny or a nickel.
This card features silent screen ingenue Marguerita Fischer whose body of work was primarily in the pre-WWI era. During World War I, she changed the spelling of her last name to Fisher from the German spelling. She received acclaim for her role as the slave girl in Uncle Tom's cabin and later in 1927 she was cast as Eliza when Uncle Tom's Cabin was redone. The picture is on a divided postcard back that has never been sent through the mail. The card is in good to fair condition with rounded bumped corners and edge wear.
