DescriptionRhodes (Gaumont, 1936). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
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 had some tape on the back of folds which has resulted in paper lift from the verso but not detrimental to the image. There was sight border wear with minor chips and some crossfold paper loss. Professional restoration has the poster displaying beautifully. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $300 - $600.
