    The Crimson Trail (Universal, 1935). One Sheet (27" X 41"). In a story involving neighboring ranches and low-down cattle thieves, cowboy star Buck Jones shines in this Universal Western. Considered by many to be one of the greatest of the B-movie Western stars, Jones's skills with riding and shooting were real, gained during his childhood living on a ranch in Oklahoma, and later stints in a variety of Wild West shows. After World War I, Jones relocated to Hollywood, where he found work in movies featuring such Western icons as Tom Mix and Franklyn Farnum, and soon became one of the top motion picture stars of the era. In 1942, on a wartime bond-selling tour, Jones was in Boston at the Coconut Grove nightclub when a terrible fire broke out. The actor was badly burned in the blaze, and died several days later, one of hundreds who lost their lives in the conflagration. He is fondly remembered today as a fine actor and a true gentleman. The poster offered here, with its impressive portrait of Jones, had pinholes in the corners, fold wear with crossfold separation, chipping at the borders and a small amount in the image area, and a piece out of the bottom center, with inpainting on several of the letters to repair the damage. Professional restoration has addressed these issues, providing a poster that any Western fan would be proud to own, as it is one of Jones's best from the period. Very Good+ on Linen.
