    Description

    Rio Grande (Republic, 1950). Standee (32.5" X 59). John Ford directed this romantic action film set just after the Civil War, when the U.S. Army turned its attention to the Apaches in the Southwest, who had been roaming at will while the Army was busy elsewhere. John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara star, with Claude Jarman Jr., Chill Wills, Victor McLaglen, and Harry Carey, Jr. turning in nice supporting performances, in Ford's last film in his "Cavalry Trilogy." This is a very rare standee, used in theater lobbies to advertise an upcoming film. These pieces are rare due to the fact that they were oversized and would be more difficult to store. Thus most of them went to the trash heap. This poster is silk-screened artwork in the bottom two-thirds and a large black and white portrait of the two stars glued at the top third. The bottom two corners are impacted and there is some soiling and color paint transfer shown in horizontal lines as the poster is printed on corrugated cardboard. The poster displays beautifully and still has the string easel hangers on the verso. This is one we have never seen before and offers a fabulous image of Wayne and O'Hara together! Fine-.
