Selig Polyscope
I don’t usually mention reproduction items and I’ve ignored similar posters for other Selig Polyscope films. But "The Equine Detective”? What was it, the “Sherlock Holmes of the Stable” going undercover pulling a wagon? The possibilities are almost endless.

In fact, according to a 1914 article in The Times, Arabia was a well-known horse who performed in vaudeville and also appeared in films by Universal.

Bidding starts at $7.99
