    Description

    The Man from Monterey (Warner Brothers - First National, 1933). Three Sheet (40.5" X 75").
    Although John Wayne was given his big break in 1930 appearing in The Big Trail, the film was not a commercial success and Wayne was relegated back to supporting player and actor-in-serial status. For the next two years, he toiled at supporting other B-Western stars like Tim McCoy. Then, in 1933, Warner Brothers Studio needed a B Western star for their 4 Star Westerns under the control of Leon Schlesinger and John Wayne would received his second chance at stardom. He was given top billing and made several films from 1933 to 1934 that would solidify his Western on-screen persona and create a legend in the process. Collectors of the Western film poster genre will be hard pressed to find a finer image of John Wayne than the on on this 1933 stone lithograph three sheet. A youthful Wayne and his trusty horse "Duke" rescue beauty Ruth Hall in vivid, crisp color. Quality linenbacking and minimal restoration were applied to address chipping along the top vertical fold, a chip in the left border, light stains in the top border into the background, and pinholes in the corners. This poster is a true classic from the beginning days of John Wayne's career. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
