    40 Horse Hawkins (Universal, 1924). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    In this pleasant silent Western comedy, small-town handyman Luke Hawkins (Hoot Gibson) falls madly in love with visiting actress Mary Darling (Anne Cornwall), and follows her back to New York when the troupe leaves his little town of Lariat. Luke manages to win a part in Mary's newest play, and that's when the fun really begins. One of Hollywood's top Western stars, Gibson was commanding up to $16,000 per picture at the time this film was released, and was an accomplished cowboy in real life, unlike many of his Tinseltown contemporaries. Second only to Tom Mix in terms of box office popularity, Gibson was one of the few silent stars to make the successful transition to talkies. This marvelous stone litho one sheet features Gibson in his prime. It has pinholes in the corners, pinpoint crossfold separations, and light edge wear. Additionally, theater information has been printed along the bottom border. For any Western or silent film fan, this is a beautiful example of early poster art. Folded, Very Fine.
