    Jesse James (20th Century Fox, 1939). Very Fine- on Paper. Half Sheet (22" X 28") Fredric C. Madan Artwork.
    Though 1939 was a fruitful year for motion pictures, one of the overlooked classics from that year would be this biography of America's most famous outlaw. Henry King directed this Technicolor classic, which depicts James, played by Tyrone Power, as a Robin Hood of his day. Posters from this film have always been very difficult to find. Offered in this lot is a never folded, half sheet that has been linen-backed. The borders have been airbrushed to address surface paper loss and chips, including a chip off the bottom left corner. There was a tear in the right border and several pinholes. After restoration, it now displays beautifully.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
