    Description

    My Own Pal (Fox, 1926). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Of all the Western heroes who galloped across the silver screen in the 1920s, perhaps none cut a bigger figure than Tom Mix. Certainly, William S. Hart was more historically accurate in his portrayals, and Ken Maynard may have been tougher, but there's no denying Mix's innate sense of style and showmanship. He did all his own stunts - and had the injuries to prove it - and by the early 1930s, was making $20,000 per week. After performing in a few talking pictures, Mix left the screen to headline his own circus. He died in a tragic car wreck on October 12, 1940. In this film, Tom is transported from the Old West to contemporary New York City, where he joins a traveling rodeo, meets and falls in love with a beautiful girl (Olive Borden), wins a police riding tournament, becomes a mounted officer, and even catches a fleeing jewel thief! Not bad for a day's work. This incredible stone litho one sheet had crossfold separations, fold wear, and pieces missing in the borders, but now looks as good as new, thanks to expertly applied professional restoration. It's a thrilling poster that the lucky winner will certainly display proudly! Fine on Linen.
