    Description

    Marihuana (Roadshow Attractions, 1936). Folded, Very Fine. One Sheet (28" X 41").
    Although the film was about the evils of smoking marijuana, the artwork on the poster would lead one to believe the film was actually about heroin. And when Dwain Esper produced this film, that was the message he was conveying-- the use of marijuana is addicting after just one puff, and would lead to heroin addiction. The lead character, a teenage girl, goes from smoking marijuana on a beach one night to getting pregnant, eventually becoming a heroin dealer who is forced to give up her baby for adoption. The film is one of the true cult classics of the 1930s and became far more popular on college campuses in the 1960s for its "campiness" than when it was first released. The posters for the film were as low budget as the picture itself and are quite rare as the film didn't play in major theatres. Indications of use include slight edge and fold wear, light creases, very small fold separations, and minor tears and nicks. There is faint image ghosting, unobtrusive stains, as well as a thin dust shadow.
