    Description

    The Alamo (United Artists, 1960). Folded, Very Fine-. Horizontal German A0 (46" X 33"). Reynold Brown Artwork.
    Despite being a top-ten money maker for its 1960 release, and its popularity in Europe and Japan, this film could not recoup its massive budget in its initial release. John Wayne assumed huge personal debt to get the film finished at a budget of $12 million after United Artists refused to pay for cost overruns during production. It wasn't until the television rights sale in 1971 that Wayne's personal debts were finally paid off. The U.S. one sheet only pictures a small portion of the Brown artwork, whereas this poster pictures the entire painting. Interestingly, John Wayne's head seems to have been replaced by another artist's work on this poster. It has slight edge and fold wear, small fold separations and tears, as well as light creases. There are pinholes, minor chips, and a bit of surface rippling in the left border.


    Estimate: $300 - $600.
