    Description

    Dick Tracy (Republic, 1937). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41"). Episode 1 - "The Spider Strikes."
    Republic Studios produced some of the best serials during the genre's heyday. This 15 chapter Republic programmer stars Ralph Byrd as the granite jawed detective, who battles a master criminal called the Spider. Posters for this title are exceedingly rare and seldom come to market. This poster represents Chapter 1 entitled, "The Spider Strikes" and features entirely different art than the other fourteen chapters. Chester Gould's own rendering of his famed detective is featured on the poster as well as an artist's vision of Ralph Byrd in his first turn as the crime fighter. Touchup has been applied to fold wear, with chips in the borders and folds. The chapter title has been restored and there has been touchup to the "T" and part of the "Y" in TRACY. The excellent restoration has returned this dynamic poster to its original glory.
