    Description

    Jesse James (Mesco, 1921). Three Sheet (41" X 81") and Poster (10.5" x 28").
    Believed to be a poster produced for the film starring the son of the real-life outlaw, Jesse James. The story is the familiar "society made me a criminal," told in flashback by Jesse James, whose daughter is about to marry the son of a millionaire. This film and a sequel were produced and exhibited outside the normal Hollywood circles. Little is known about the film and we are speculating as to which film the poster was used for. Included with the poster is a broadside which depicts the poster on it showing a 1930 Triumphal Tour. Most likely the broadside was used for a reissue of the film in 1930. The poster is printed in two pieces and has vibrant stone lithography. The poster has tears at the edges and in the field, fold separations with paper loss, and fold wear; the smaller poster has tanning along the borders and crossfold, edge tears, chips along the edges, and small holes in the field. Fine.
