Comments

Scarce original promotional pamphlet for Hobart Bosworth's silent film production of "The Sea Wolf." Produced with the authorization and collaboration of Jack London, starring Bosworth as Wolf Larsen and reportedly with London playing the role of one of the seamen aboard Wolf Larsen's ship, the Ghost. Hobart Bosworth (1867-1943) was a pioneering film actor, writer, and director, who contracted with jack London to produce movies based on his stories - beginning with The Sea Wolf in 1913 and followed by 5 more films in 1914. Though his partnership with London did not last, Bosworth had a long career in film and was known as "The Dean of Hollywood." (See Tony WIlliams "Jack London: The Movies, an Historical Survey.)
