    Description

    The Life of Buffalo Bill (Pawnee Bill Film Co., 1912). One Sheet (28" X 42"). One of the most colorful figures of the Old West, William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody was also a consummate showman. His traveling show, Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World, included as many as 1,200 performers, featuring such notable figures as Sitting Bull and Annie Oakley. Later, with the advent of new technology, Cody branched into film, starring as himself in a number of self-promoting pictures dating back as far as 1894. Offered here is a beautiful stone litho poster from one of Cody's three-reelers, featuring a wonderful, idealized image of the legendary frontiersman among a group of Native Americans. It had pinholes and small tears in the image area, some tearing and slight chipping in the borders, and a small piece out of the lower left border that extends several inches into the image area. Expertly applied professional restoration has addressed all of these concerns admirably, returning a high degree of eye-appeal and displayability to this classic beauty, now almost a century old. Combining both the best features of Western imagery and American history, this is a rare piece that you won't want to pass by. Another style one sheet to this film sold for over $3,000 in our last auction. Very Good on Linen.
