    Dick Tracy's G-Men (Republic, 1939). Very Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41") Chapter 8 -- "Chamber of Doom."
    It was during his capture by the FBI that gangster Machine-Gun Kelly stated the legendary line, "Don't shoot G-Man, don't shoot !" And from that moment on, the FBI became synonymous with the term G-Men. And although Dick Tracy was a police officer in Chicago in the comic strip, the producers of this exciting serial made Tracy an FBI agent. The plot was classic "serial" with Tracy and the FBI taking on the forces of evil spies led by Nicolas Zarnoff. The poster features a small image of the Chester Gould art of Trace, along with a larger image of Tracy manning a machine gun from the cockpit of a plane. The inset shows Ralph Byrd (Tracy) busting in on the gang. The poster had fold wear with small chips in the vertical fold, and pinholes.

    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.

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