DescriptionSanta Fe Trail (Warner Bros., 1940). Fine on Linen. Three Sheet (41.5" X 79").
Legendary adventure film star Errol Flynn and famed director Michael Curtiz teamed for one of the last times in this epic telling of the army's conflict with abolitionist John Brown. Future President of the United States, Ronald Regan, played George Armstrong Custer (a role Flynn would make his own two years later in They Died With Their Boots On) and Olivia DeHavilland, Flynn's usual leading lady, portrayed Kit Carson Halliday. Curtiz proved once again that he was the absolute master of the action sequence as the army smashed John Brown's forces. Three sheets on this title are exceptionally rare. This three sheet has been professionally restored to address fold wear and separation, creases, chips in the borders and folds, and tears. There was a horizontal tear from the left border to the right border through the top of Flynn's hat. The poster also had an approximately 0.5" trim along the upper border. The borders, title, parts of the background, and Flynn's credit have been airbrushed.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
