    Paradise Canyon (Monogram, 1935). Three Sheet (40" X 81").
    The last of the "Lone Star Westerns" John Wayne made for Monogram in the early years of his career, this is probably the most action-packed. As undercover Federal agent John Wyatt, Wayne is on the trail of a counterfeiting ring operating near the Mexico/Arizona border. Legendary stuntman Yakima Canutt supplies much of the action in this picture; Wayne and Canutt soon became good friends and would go on to appear in a number of pictures together. This attention-grabbing stone litho three sheet, considered by many to be Wayne's best from the 1930s, has been mounted on linen with touchup to the folds (with a bit of post-restoration splitting), pinholes in the borders and image, a chip in the right border/tear into the background, chipping in the top vertical fold, chipping in the top horizontal fold, a chip in the top border into the "M" of "Monogram," tears in the left border, and the top right corner has been replaced. It's unlikely this poster will be up for auction again anytime soon, as Heritage has presented it only once before in 2007. Fine on Linen.
