    Description

    The Planter (Mutual, 1917). Three Sheet (41" X 79").
    This beautifully dramatic stone litho three sheet is a first time offer from Heritage and is from the film based off of Herman Whitaker's novel of the same name. The film revolves around the real-life issues facing the Mexican rubber industry, the contract-labor system, and the systemic mistreatment of the Yaqui Indians, all while developing the drama of plantation politics and contested romance. Seen on this poster are Tyrone Power Sr. as the tyrannical plantation land owner and Helen Bateman. The poster had chips from the lower border into the name "Herman Whitaker." There were a few tears and chips extending from the folds, a sliver of paper loss in Helen Bateman's face, and paper loss from the lower edge of the second and third panels into the image. Beautiful and skillful restoration has brought this poster up to its original glory. Very Good on Linen.
