    Description

    The Texas Streak (Universal, 1926). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    It is said that cinema cowboy star Edmund "Hoot" Gibson acquired his unusual nickname because he liked to hunt owls as a boy. Gibson left home and joined the circus at age 13, and later worked as a cowpuncher. By the age of 16, he had become a skilled performer in Wild West rodeo shows and went on to win the title of "World's All-Around Champion Cowboy" in 1912. He got his first big break in John Ford's five-reeler feature film Action and went on to become the cowboy idol of millions of American kids throughout the 1920s and 1930s. Hollywood cowboy Chad Pennington (Hoot Gibson) is stranded in the real Wild West when his location shoot is finished. He hires on as a guard for a surveyor, but prop guns loaded with blanks aren't going to be much help against the bad guys! There are pinholes in the borders, a small edge chip, light staining in the borders, a few border tears, and the lower corners have begun to separate from the masa paper. Beautiful stone litho artwork. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
