    Description

    The Big Trail (Fox, 1931). Rolled, Fine/Very Fine. Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 39.5").
    This film has the honor of being the first movie ever shot in 70mm. Only a few theaters had the ability to run the format, so a 35mm version of the film was shot at the same time. While the film's tagline, "The Most Important Film Ever Produced," referred to the new film process, it could very well have been a prophetic reference to the movie's inexperienced male lead, as it marked the first starring role for John Wayne. Any posters from this early sound Western are very hard to find. This vivid Swedish one sheet with brilliant stone litho color, shows edge wear, slight creases, as well as small tears and chips at the edges. There is a bit of faint staining in the lower left corner and a light dust shadow along the left edge. Some of the tears have been braced with archival tape on the verso. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
