    Description

    King of the Pecos (Republic, 1936). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    John Wayne stars in this Western as a law student seeking revenge on the ruthless land baron who killed his parents; after he is thwarted in the courts, he chooses to explore frontier justice instead. Wayne would not become a bankable Hollywood star until three years after this film was made, in John Ford's Stagecoach (1939). In the years between his big break in The Big Trail (1931) and Stagecoach, he made almost 60 B Westerns such as this one. The posters for these early Wayne Westerns are some of the most collectible in the hobby, especially when a poster is as attractive as this one! The poster is restored on linen and has corrected a chip in the upper right white border and lower left white border. There were other small chips and pinholes around the border. There was wear to the folds and a U shaped tear from the upper border into the yellow field. The poster now displays very well and this is only the second time Heritage has had the pleasure to offer this poster.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
