    The Phantom Empire (Mascot, 1935). One Sheet (27" X 41"). When cowboy mega-star Ken Maynard decided he was tired of filming serials, Mascot studio head Nat Levine unceremoniously dumped him in favor of a new and untried former bit-player, a singing cowboy named Gene Autry. The result was Hollywood history. Autry stars in this, one of the most influential sci-fi films ever made. In 12 exciting chapters, Gene and his pals, young Frankie Darro and Betsy King Ross, do battle with the forces of the underground city of Murania, all the while trying to stave off a group of evil businessmen who want to grab Autry's Radio Ranch for their own nefarious ends. Through it all, Autry manages to include at least one song in every thrilling episode. Offered here is a rare, duotone-style one sheet for this important science fiction Western. It had pinholes in the corners, a chip in the right border, and small holes in the left and right borders. These small defects have been addressed with professional restoration. Posters from this title rarely surface. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
