    Description

    South of the Rio Grande (Columbia, 1932). Fine- on Linen. One Sheet (27.5" X 41").
    By the time this movie was made, star Buck Jones was at the peak of his career. A leading Western star, he had spent time as a bronco buster with a Wild West show before coming to Hollywood, skills that stood him in good stead on the screen. At one point, it's said, Jones received more fan mail than any other star in the world. Tragically, his life was cut short in 1942 while, during a war bond rally, he perished in a fire at Boston's Coconut Grove nightclub. This rare poster is one of the best in the entire Western genre. Moody and dramatic, it is an exceptional portrait of a great actor. Well conserved, the poster no longer shows fold wear and separations, pinholes, some tears, and chips in and near the corners. The background has been mostly airbrushed, and the poster's borders were trimmed, but have since been replaced.


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