"Stagecoach", 1939
Original Vintage Movie Poster Insert (14x36")
Starring John Wayne

Gorgeous insert movie poster for the 1948 re-release of this western movie masterpiece!  It is the 1939 western classic that is often credited with the "big break" into super stardom for John Wayne, who previously had been primarily doing B movies.   Paper on this title is very scarce.  A 1939 release one sheet sold in 2007 for $78,000!  And, it appears that this 1948 re-release insert has never sold before.   And, the artwork on this insert is about the best we have seen for this Duke classic.  Whereas, the 1939 one sheet does not include the "Duke" in the artwork.   Very good condition and has been professionally linen backed.

Stagecoach (United Artists, R-1948).
Insert (14" X 36").
A sensational film with enduring appeal, Stagecoach not only redefined the Western as a serious cinematic genre, but made an overnight superstar of John Wayne, who had previously toiled in "B" pictures for studios such as Republic and Monogram. As the Ringo Kid, Wayne is instrumental in getting a group of travelers safely to their destination, revealing hidden truths about each of them along the way. Less a standard Western than an insightful character piece, the film also marks the beginning of director John Ford's love affair with Monument Valley, a location that would figure prominently in a number of his later films. Offered here is a gorgeous insert from the 1948 re-release of this classic film. It had a tear in the top border into the background, small tears in the right and left borders and a top left missing corner, but expert restoration has rendered these slight flaws virtually invisible. The poster was previously folded and the linen has been trimmed to border.
