    Description

    Tumbling Tumbleweeds (Republic, 1935). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41"). From the Mike Kaplan Collection.
    Following a 1934 cameo in Ken Maynard's In Old Santa Fe, singing cowboy sensation Gene Autry was given his first starring role in this feature. This impressive one sheet is one of only a small handful of copies, and depicts the star in a perfect likeness. From 1934 to 1953, Autry appeared in 93 films, and between 1950 and 1956 hosted The Gene Autry Show television series. During the 1930s and 1940s, he was one of the most popular screen stars and personified the straight-shooting hero—honest, brave, and true—and profoundly touched the lives of millions of Americans. This rare poster has been professionally restored to address a very slight trim to the right and upper and lower borders. There was wear to the folds with touchup applied .


    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
