Description

    The Lone Ranger (Warner Brothers, 1956). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    The Masked Rider of the Plains gallops onto the silver screen in the form of the great Clayton Moore. This was the first of two Technicolor features made to cash in on the popularity of the TV series, which began in 1949 and was still running when this feature was released; the series would continue until 1957. Jay Silverheels is of course Tonto, the Ranger's sidekick who helps him bring crooked land baron Reece Kilgore (Lyle Bettger) to justice, while Bonita Granville stars as the heroine. This dramatic three sheet, perhaps the best image of the beloved hero, has had some restoration to address a chip and a tear in the top border that extends into the background, a tear in the left border, and small chips and two tears in the artwork. This is considered by most to be the best poster for this film and rarely comes to auction! This is the only copy we have ever auctioned. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
