    Description

    The Searchers (Warner Brothers, 1956). Standee (32" X 57.5").
    This true classic of the American cinema is considered by many to be one of the greatest Westerns ever made. Director John Ford's film of a war weary ex-Confederate soldier who becomes obsessed with hunting down the Comanche tribe who has massacred his family and kidnapped his young niece, has been copied by many, but never equaled. John Wayne gives the performance of his career, in the role he claimed to be his favorite, as Ethan Edwards. This is perhaps the rarest poster we have offered from this great film, the cardboard standee! We have never offered this before nor are we aware of another copy in existence. Get this while you can as it may be your only opportunity! The poster has some slight wear to the outer edges as well as 2-3" of water staining on the bottom edge. There is minor color transfer on the upper part of the upper image of Monument Valley as is typical of these standees. Fine.
