    Description

    Rhodes (Gaumont, 1936). One Sheet (27" X 41"). This film stars Walter Huston as Cecil Rhodes, the 19th century explorer who opened up southern Africa for British imperialism by founding the colony of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Trouble soon begins however when Dutch colonists, led by prime minister Kruger (Oscar Homolka), become at odds with Rhodes' settlement, resulting in the Boer War. This beautiful stone litho displays bold, colorful portrait shots of Huston and Ann Carpenter, along with a stirring collage of African natives and British soldiers. The poster has fold line wear with small amounts of paper loss, and the borders have some creases, small tears, and minimal paper loss. It has been professionally restored, greatly minimizing these defects, so that it displays very well. Fine+ on Linen.

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