The Westerner (Guaranteed Pictures, 1943). Folded, Very Fine-. Argentinean Poster (29" X 43") Osvaldo Venturi Artwork. Gary Cooper is ostensibly the star of this classic Western, but Walter Brennan's Judge Roy Bean is the scene-stealer of the film. Brennan was a shoo-in to win his third Oscar, with memorable dialogue from such writers as Jo Swerling, W.R. Burnett, Lillian Hellman, and Dudley Nichols. "No, I never met (Lily Langtry). I never met the sun, I never shook hands with the moon, and I've never been introduced to no clouds." This Argentinean poster has pinholes in the borders and outer background, a tear in the bottom border with a tape stain on the verso, and a torn pinhole in the bottom left corner. The borders show mild creasing, slight fold separations, faint satins, and each border was once folded over.
