    Description

    Cimarron (RKO, 1931). Very Fine+ on Linen. Swedish One Sheet (26.25" X 39.5").
    The first Western to win the Best Picture Oscar (and for almost sixty years, the only one), Richard Dix stars as the daring Yancey Cravat, with Irene Dunne playing his shrewd and savvy wife, Sabra. The film opens with a restaging of the Oklahoma Land Rush, a massive cinematic undertaking with hundreds of extras and horse drawn buggies and wagons that helped to garner some of the film's awards. Released during the worst of the Depression, the film was perhaps the only Best Picture winner to lose money on its first release. Boasting an excellent image with elements of Art Deco influence, this well-preserved stone litho poster only required light professional touchup to some of the folds.


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
