She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (RKO, 1951). Very Fine- on Linen. First Release Argentinean One Sheet (29" X 44"). From the Mike Kaplan Collection. The team of director John Ford, actor John Wayne and the location of Monument Valley (John Ford Country), made for the best Westerns in cinematic history. Add to it the "John Ford Company" of actors including Victor McLaglen, John Agar, Harry Carey Jr., and Ben Johnson and you had the makings of a legend. She Wore a Yellow Ribbon is the best of Ford's cavalry trilogy of films, and found John Wayne as a cavalry Captain on the edge of retirement, going out for one last patrol while a major Native American attack is imminent. Presented for the first time by Heritage and once displayed at the Gallery of Film Poster Art at California State Northridge, this poster has received professional restoration to correct minor fold separations, pinholes, small chips in the borders, and a few tears. The borders have been airbrushed.
