Name: WILLARD, JESS MOVIE LOBBY CARD (CHALLENGE OF CHANCE-1919)

History: Challenge of Chance, a 1919 movie, stars heavyweight boxing champ Jess Willard, with serial queen Arline Pretty appearing as Jess' leading lady. A western, the film casts Willard as a ranch hand who rescues Pretty from a Mexican bandit. He also saves a stable of valuable horses from being stolen, which in the eyes of many is a more worthy achievement than the salvation of the heroine. Jess Willard couldn't act to save his life, but he handled the action sequences with elan. Offered here is a rare lobby card picturing Jess Willard with another actor in The Challenge Of Chance.
