Sands of Iwo Jima, 1950
Original Vintage Movie Poster Half Sheet
Starring John Wayne

 

Striking vintage WWII era movie poster with John Wayne in his most memorable combat role.    Very good condition with border wear and tears.

Sands of Iwo Jima (Republic, 1950). Half Sheet (22" X 28") .
John Wayne bleeds red, white and blue in this patriotic war picture about the Marine Corps storming the island Iwo Jima. The sequence involving the raising of the U.S. flag on Mount Suribachi is a legendary image of the American soldier. It doesn't get any better than this for sheer U.S. patriotism. ... Shortly after finishing his first Oscar-nominated role in this film, John Wayne received one of Hollywood's ultimate honors -- he was asked to put his footprints in cement outside Grauman's Chinese Theater. For the occasion, black sand from Iwo Jima was shipped in and mixed with the concrete, so that Wayne could actually leave his foot (and fist!) prints in the sands of Iwo Jima.
Starring John Wayne, John Agar, Adele Mara, Forrest Tucker, Wally Cassell, James Brown, Richard Webb, Arthur Franz, Julie Bishop, James Holden and Peter Coe. Directed by Allan Dwan. 

Great color. Right border shows heavy wear. 7" jagged tear at left border running to title box. Border and corner wear. Rolled. Would restore easily. Please see enlarged image to view details.
