Description

    Stagecoach (United Artists, 1939). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    A landmark of the genre, Stagecoach redefined the Western for all time. Previous to this film, Westerns were mostly shoot-'em-ups, with cowboys vs. either Indians or cattle rustlers, presented in a formulaic manner. Director John Ford broke the mold with this picture, set largely in Utah's famed Monument Valley, a gripping character study of a diverse group of people thrown together in the cramped quarters of a stagecoach, making their way across hostile territory. Making the film even more significant was the casting of John Wayne in the lead role of the Ringo Kid. Wayne, who had toiled as a player in a string of B movies for years, was suddenly elevated to superstar status with the release of this film, the first of many collaborations between Wayne and Ford. Not surprisingly, paper from this film is considered highly desirable and eminently collectible. The card offered here, featuring a beautiful panorama of Monument Valley, has pinholes in the corners and in the field, paper tape on the reverse, a tear in the right side, corner bumps, slight bends in the top and bottom left corners, light creasing in the top border, minor edge wear, and light smudging in the right border. These slight flaws are barely noticeable however, and the card presents beautifully. Fine-.
