    Description

    Marihuana (1936). One Sheet (28" X 42.25"). Alternate Title: Pitfalls of Youth.
    A young woman succumbs to the evils of marijuana, leading to crime, pregnancy, and prostitution in this early anti-weed exploitation film directed by Dwain Esper. Originally titled Marihuana - The Devil's Weed, the picture serves as a companion piece to the cult favorite, Reefer Madness. Offered for the first time by Heritage, this is most likely a "states' rights" poster used by local distributors when the film's producers would sell the marketing rights to individual territories. Showcasing a provocative image of a young woman smoking a joint, this rare one sheet is an excellent example of early exploitation posters. Prior to restoration, the piece showed pinholes and small tears in the borders, small chips in the corners and borders, and a minor chip in the lower crossfold. Very Fine on Linen.
