    Description

    A Debtor to the Law (Pan American, 1919). One Sheet (27" X 40.5") Portrait Style.
    Henry Starr was a real-life bank robber who was shot while attempting to hold up a bank in Stroud, Oklahoma. Upon his release from prison, he hit on the idea of making a movie of the attempt, hiring many of the people he had actually tried to rob. The result was this silent film, his only cinematic appearance. Two years after the film's release, Starr was fatally shot while trying to rob another bank. A Heritage first, this one sheet features a larger-than-life portrait of the menacing Starr. Bold stone litho colors punctuate the outlaw's visage, leaving no doubt this fellah means business! The linen has been trimmed up to the borders. Touchup to some small chips and tears in the borders, fold wear, and tears along the folds. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
