    Dynamite Ranch (K-B-S, 1932). Midget Window Card (8" X 13.25"). One of the biggest Western stars of the 1920s and 30s, Ken Maynard was the hero of boys everywhere as he rode the range on his half-Arabian, half-American saddle horse, Tarzan. A difficult personality in real life, Maynard drifted from studio to studio, burning bridges everywhere he went. Regardless, he had a solid career from the early 1920s through the mid-1940s. During his later years, Maynard toured with the Cole Brothers-Clyde Beatty Circus, trading on his fame as a cowboy film star. This picture, "Dynamite Ranch," was made at the height of Maynard's fame while he was making popular "poverty row" pictures for Saturday matinees. It's a thoroughly enjoyable, action-packed Western regarding a case of mistaken identity and a race against time to find the real thieves responsible for a train robbery. This card has been trimmed a bit at the top, and shows a horizontal crease just above the center, with a small tear in the right border, as well as a corner bend in the bottom left. Aside from these insignificant flaws, this is a very appealing card, bearing a striking portrait of Maynard. From the Collection of Denver Sherry. Fine/Very Fine.
