DescriptionJesse James (20th Century Fox, 1939). Insert (14" X 36").
Although the real Frank and Jesse James were a pair of low-life, murderous thugs, Henry Fonda and Tyrone Power portray them as a couple of solid citizens, who only turn to a life of crime to avenge the death of their mother at the hands of greedy railroad tycoons. The result is a highly entertaining, if historically inaccurate, Western that brilliantly showcases two outstanding actors. The pair can be seen on this rare insert format, along with Nancy Kelly. Partial touchup has been applied to the folds, creases, scratches, and tears. A few of the tears are in the interior, and there was a chip in the left border and background. Some of these issues are still visible, as well as edge wear, pinholes into the interior, and a rounded top right corner. The folds, some of the larger tears, and the chip to the left have been reinforced with paper and archival materials on the verso. Folded, Fine.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
