DescriptionThe Virginian (Paramount, 1929). Very Good/Fine. Window Card (14" X 22").
A fine early Western showcasing the considerable talents of a young Gary Cooper, this was the picture that instantly elevated him from a strong leading man to a full-fledged superstar. Cooper was initially nervous to take part in his first talking picture, but his fears were groundless, as audiences responded as favorably to his resonant voice as they had to his rugged good looks. This lovely window card has had the left three inches of the image professionally replaced. There was some airbrush work in the upper imprint area as well as the other borders. The majority of the image, especially of the stars, is untouched and the card displays beautifully.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
