A Cvtreasures first!

Rare Original lobby card for one of the greatest westerns of all time and the role that transformed John Wayne from a B movie actor to a Superstar and what many consider the most revered movie star of all time. The 1939 masterpiece, Stagecoach.    Any Original paper from the 1939 classic is very scarce.  As a matter of fact, it was just recently in March of 2020 that the most ever paid for an original piece of "Stagecoach" movie paper, a one sheet, sold at auction for $84,000!  And that one sheet doesn't even include an image of John Wayne. 

This rare original lobby card is in good-very good condition with considerable wear including spot staining and pinholes primarily relegated to the borders,  but still exhibits beautiful colors and graphics.  And is 100% Original UN-Restored..  You're not likely to ever see this appear on the market anytime soon, if ever again.

Stagecoach (United Artists, 1939). Fine. Lobby Card (11" X 14"). 
Starring Claire Trevor, John Wayne, Andy Devine, John Carradine, Thomas Mitchell, Louise Platt, George Bancroft, Donald Meek, Berton Churchill, Tim Holt, and Tom Tyler. Directed by John Ford. An unrestored lobby card with good color and an overall very presentable appearance. It may have slight edge wear, small tears, pinholes, surface scuffs, spotted staining, and/or smudging. There are a couple of streaks of paint in the borders.

 Considered by many film historians to be one of the best Westerns ever made, director John Ford reached a new height in his craft with this taut film. The story of a stage journey across dangerous Indian territory with nine people in tow, the acting chops of the cast is at its greatest. And most spectacularly, John Wayne makes his first A-film in almost a decade in the role of the Ringo Kid

Masterful and highly influential, this classic Western about a group of strangers making a dangerous journey across the plains on a stagecoach not only elevated star John Wayne and director John Ford to superstar status, it also redefined the genre. A thoughtful, character-driven film, this picture stands as an extraordinary feat for all involved, and proved that Westerns could be more than just shoot-'em-ups.

 Relegated to second-bill westerns for the first ten years of his career, John Wayne finally found a director who knew how best to utilize his unique screen presence. Ford had to fight for Wayne during casting, as producer Walter Wanger refused to cast an actor best known for "B" films. Ford won out, of course, but only John Carradine earned a lesser salary than the Duke.

Although both had been working in Hollywood for years, John Wayne and John Ford became legends of the Western genre with this superb film, one of the most influential ever made. A group of strangers making a dangerous journey across the plains on a stagecoach redefined the genre, proving that Westerns could be more than just shoot-'em-ups. A thoughtful, character-driven film, this picture stands as a masterwork for all involved.
