    Description

    Marihuana (Roadshow Attractions, 1936). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Directed by Dwain Esper, and written by Esper's wife, Hildegarde Stadie, this anti-drug propaganda film tells the story of a good girl named Burma who goes to a party, smokes marijuana, and winds up going skinny-dipping with her girl friends. When one of the girls drowns, the dope pushers come up with a plan to hide the body. Continuing the downward spiral, Burma ends up pregnant and unmarried. She is forced to give the child up for adoption and become a drug dealer. The poster has the blank upper imprint area where the theater name could be posted. This was often done for the cheaper films that were distributed on a states-rights basis. The poster is restored on linen with a missing upper left corner, a small chip out of the left border, and a tear in the lower border. There is also a clean 4" tear in the black background near the red hand. The poster displays very well. From the collection of Jim Ashton. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
