DescriptionThe Bull-Dogger (Norman, 1921). One Sheet (27" X 41").
Bill Pickett, a world class rodeo stuntman, starred in two in two feature films for the Norman Film Manufacturing Company during the early 1920s: this title and The Crimson Skull the following year. Known as the fearless creator of the bull-dogging technique, where a rider grabs a steer by the horns and wrestles it to the ground, Pickett was later inducted into the National Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1972. Professional touchup to this excellent example of stone litho printing has been applied to the folds with minor chips in the middle and bottom crossfolds, and to some pinholes and small tears in the borders and interior. There are unaddressed stains with mild surface rippling in the borders. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
