    Description

    The Alamo (United Artists, 1960). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. British Quad (30" X 40"). Reynold Brown Artwork.
    John Wayne had wanted to make a version of this epic moment in Texas' history since the 1940s, however, it wasn't until 1960 that his opportunity finally came to fruition. With a rousing score by Dimitri Tiomkin, the film depicted the suicidal stand of a band of Independent Texan revolutionaries against the entire Mexican army. Aside from Wayne himself, who plays Davy Crockett, the all-star cast includes Richard Widmark, Laurence Harvey, Frankie Avalon, and Chill Wills. The poster displays slight edge and fold wear, a few fold separations, mild creases, and enlarged pinholes. There are small tears, unobtrusive rust stains, as well as a minor gouge with a tape stain near the credits. The verso has a strip of paper tape bracing a fold.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
