If you think you have all the John Wayne posters you need...think again.

You'll need to make a little room for this highly scarce, breath-taking gem of a find!.  Spectacular artwork.   
In addition to the breath-taking super large close-up, are the other two terrific images of the young Duke!    This half sheet along with the "Man From Utah" we also recently acquired, are two of the most beautiful, eye catching  movie posters ever created for this iconic western movie star..  Simply Movie Art Masterpieces!   

A first for us, although we once had the alternate half sheet style, which was no comparison to this gorgeous vintage  treasure!

An Original Vintage Theatrical Folded Half-Sheet Movie Poster (measures 22" x 28" )  

Description:  The Lonely Trail, the 1936 Joseph Kane cowboy western ("Original story by Bernard McConville") starring  John Wayne ,  Ann Rutherford , Cy Kendall,  Fred 'Snowflake' Toones , Sam Flint, Dennis Moore, and  Yakima Canutt 

Important Added Info:  Note that John Wayne had his first chance at stardom in 1930 with "The Big Trail", and when that was not successful, he spent a few years in minor roles, and then became a major B-western star, and stayed that way until 1939, when he made "Stagecoach" and became a major star.  At that point, all of his mid 1930s B-westerns were re-released, and no doubt that adds to the rarity of original posters from those movies . Original 1936 half-sheets are incredibly scarce.  Note that this poster was folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube .  The condition of this 83 year old poster is quite extraordinary.  * See enlargeable image above ..

Overall Condition:  Very good . The poster was folded once in each direction and has creases on the horizontal fold, with a lesser amount on the vertical fold. It has pinholes around the edges and one below Wayne's eye, with one near the center of the poster and one in the middle of the right of the poster.  There was a 1" tear in the right of the bottom border that was repaired with tape from the back and a 1" scratch mark slightly to the right of that.   That said, this vintage movie poster is in exceptional condition!  The last half sheets we had from this time period had substantial tape repairs.    So, this gem of a find is particularly nice!

The Lonely Trail (Republic, 1936). Half Sheet (22" X 28").  Portrait Style
This is one of John Wayne's early Republic films, after they had acquired the Monogram/Lone Star banners. It features three shots of Wayne from the film, one with Wayne holding a rifle on his old antagonist, Cy Kendall. The central image is a large, terrific, portrait of Wayne looking directly at you! Great color for an unrestored 1930s poster, with only pinholes in the corners and border image, and just beneath his eye. There are small corner bumps and some small tears in the bottom border. Fine/Very Fine.


Note:   For You serious John Wayne fans and/or collectors,   this is one of four exceptional Museum Grade John Wayne Original Movie Theater Posters we currently have, that will cause whiplash to anyone who makes eye contact with this exciting Duke artifact!.    Will truly transform any ordinary room into extraordinary !
