29240a,b. (movie still photos) Rugged Water by Paramount Pictures c.1925. Two original press photos from the silent era film Rugged Water. The film had a cast consisting of Lois Wilson, Baxter Warner, Wallace Beery, and Phyllis Haver. Filmed at the famous Lasky studio in Hollywood, tThis Cape Cod melodrama was based on a novel of the same name written by Joseph C. Lincoln and published in 1924. Calvin Homer (Warner Baxter) expects to be promoted to captain of the Setuckit (Chatham) Life Saving Station, but Bartlett (Wallace Beery) is appointed because of his political connections. Bartlett’s daughter Norma (Lois Wilson) convinces Homer to stay in spite of her father’s antagonistic ways. Soon a romance springs up between the two of them, even though Myra Fuller (Phyllis Haver) has already finagled a proposal out of Homer. Eventually Myra breaks it off, however, leaving Homer free. When a storm blows, Bartlett’s religious fanaticism proves to be nothing but a cover for his cowardice and he refuses to send his crew out to rescue a vessel in distress. Homer takes charge and saves the day. Bartlett is fired from his position, and Norma becomes angry with Homer. When he takes heroic measures to rescue Bartlett — who dies in spite of his efforts — she forgives him and the couple are reunited. (Janiss Garza, All Movie Guide). Photos measure 7 ½” x 10?, b/w and are on heavy cloth-backed paper. Both are clear and close – great images and a perfect companion for the book. (VG+). $74.
