The Fighting Kentuckian (Republic, 1949). Insert (14" X 36"). Western.
Returning home from the War of 1812, John Breen, a Kentucky militiaman, falls in love with French exile Fleurette de Marchand (Vera Ralston). He discovers a plot to steal the land that Fleurette's exiles plan to settle on. Breen is mistaken for a land surveyor and is presented with a theodolite and sets out with Willie (Oliver Hardy) to look as if they are surveying (they do not actually know what to do).
Starring John Wayne, Vera Ralston, Philip Dorn, Oliver Hardy, Marie Windsor, John Howard, Hugo Haas, Grant Withers, Odette Myrtil, Paul Fix, Mae Marsh, Jack Pennick, Mickey Simpson, Fred Graham, Mabelle Koenig, Shy Waggner, and Crystal White. Directed by George Waggner.

An unrestored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as light edge and fold wear, small chips and tears, pinhole or faint smudges.


Trivia:
John Wayne was so pleased with the chemistry between him and Oliver Hardy that he offered Hardy the role of "permanent comic sidekick" in subsequent movies. By the time this picture was released, Stan Laurel had recovered from his illness and was able to return to the Laurel & Hardy team so Hardy declined Wayne's offer.
