    Description

    Marihuana (Roadshow Attractions, 1936). Very Fine on Linen. Three Sheet (42" X 79").
    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-- that 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 and 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 laughable treatment of the subject than when it was first released. Collectors avidly seek posters from this film. Touchup has been applied to the folds and a couple of chips in the lower folds. Very Fine on Linen.
