DescriptionThe Outlaw (RKO, R-1950s). Folded, Very Fine+. Full-Bleed Australian Daybill (13" X 30").
Of any film ever made by Hollywood, none had more publicity than Howard Hughes's The Outlaw. It was the film debut of nineteen-year-old Jane Russell, whose voluptuous curves caused quite a stir. The "official" release was delayed from 1941 until 1946. One of the many major obstacles was the film's poster art, as the pin-up style of many of them was considered too suggestive for the American public and had to be modified. Apparently, as this daybill demonstrates, Australian audiences needed far less moral guidance, making this poster considerably more interesting than some of its U. S. counterparts. In excellent condition, this poster has slight edge wear and fold wear, minute tears, and a lightly rounded corner in the upper right. Folded, Very Fine+.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
