    The Life of Jimmy Dolan (Warner Bros., 1933). Fine+ on Linen. Six Sheet (75.5" X 82").
    There's little paper out there for this Douglas Fairbanks Jr. picture, and the bright stone litho poster presented here is the only known six sheet still around today. It's a great chance for collectors of early cinema to own this ultra rare poster, especially those that are fans of the 1939 John Garfield remake with the Dead End Kids, They Made Me a Criminal. Fairbanks plays Jimmy Dolan, a prizefighter who mistakenly thinks he has killed a man and goes on the run from the law. Loretta Young and Guy Kibbee star alongside Fairbanks. A young John Wayne and Mickey Rooney make appearances in the picture as well. This large-format piece has received touchup at the folds, a few horizontal tears in the interior, and creasing. Some of the creases are still visible, as well as unaddressed smudging. There was a partial trim along the borders with a strip of the original white border remaining along the image area and lower text.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
