Description

    I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang (Warner Brothers, 1933). German Three Sheet (37.25" X 82") Lapiner Artwork.
    Paul Muni stars in this gripping adaptation of Robert Elliott Burns' autobiography, playing a man wrongly imprisoned for ten years on a brutal prison farm. Bravely focusing on the brutalities of Southern chain gangs common in the early 1930s, this Warner Brothers picture caused a massive outcry among the public. So much so that the real life fugitive, Burns, gained a pardon from the state of Georgia, and the film is largely credited with the abolishment of the chain gang system. This first time offer from Heritage features intense Lapiner artwork, and shows a small fold separation with a tear from the right border, an extra horizontal fold at the top, a stain in the bottom border, and a small amount of writing in the lower right corner. There is an adhesive stain along the right edges of both panels. Large posters from this film are very scarce in the hobby! Folded, Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
