    Description

    The Alamo (United Artists, 1960). Folded, Very Fine. British Quad (30" X 40"). Reynold Brown Artwork.
    If you're a fan of the Duke, this rousing British quad boasting panoramic Reynold Brown artwork is an absolute "must have." 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 soaring 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 US one sheet only pictures a small portion of the Brown artwork, whereas this poster pictures the entire painting. Signs of handling include slight edge and fold wear, light creases, minor tears, and faint foxing in the borders. Folded, Very Fine.
