    Description

    The Lone Ranger (Republic, 1938). Very Fine+ on Linen. Stock One Sheet (27" X 41") with First Episode Snipe.
    With his faithful companion, Tonto, the masked Lone Ranger makes his cinematic debut in this thrilling Republic serial. Seen on horseback on this rare advance stock one sheet, the hero and his trusted steed, Silver, are beautifully rendered against a blazing Western sunset. Originally broadcast over the airwaves in 1933, radio episodes of the Lone Ranger captured the imaginations of many, and took the nation by storm. It wasn't long after that Republic Studios, the leading producer of serials at the time, would take notice. This very rare piece is the first poster released to the theatrical market for the showing of the first appearance of the Masked Ranger! The other posters for this serial are the chapter sheets with very different artwork and varying chapter inset photos. Included with this poster is a pasted snipe used to denote it was the first chapter of the serial as there was no chapter one poster produced. A unique find for Lone Ranger and Western collectors! Touchup has addressed fold wear, with some tears in the bottom vertical fold.
