DescriptionLee Powell as The Lone Ranger (Wallace Bros. Circus, 1941). Fine+ on Linen. Circus Poster (28" X 42.5").
Most famous for his role as Allen King, the true Lone Ranger in the 1938 Republic serial of the same name, used the role extensively in his promotion of his tour with the Wallace Brothers' Circus. This was especially true after Republic released a condensed feature film of the serial called Hi-Yo Silver in 1940. His usage of the name led to a court case between the actor and the studio in 1941, in which the courts decided in Powell's favor, but the decision was later overturned in 1942. This rare stone litho poster from the circus has only been offered once before, and it has been professionally restored to correct slight creases, pinholes, minor tears, and small chips. There was a moderate amount of mirrored paper loss in the left and right borders, extending into the printing. Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
