    Description

    The Curse of the Great Southwest (Cheyenne Feature Film, 1913). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Remembered as the man who made rodeo famous across the globe, Charles Burton Irwin was a larger than life character that not only pursued life as a rancher and wild west showman, but also as the president of the Cheyenne Feature Film company. Inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame in 1905, Irwin's love for the rodeo drove him to share the experience across the country through the traveling Irwin Brothers Wild West Show and created a handful of Westerns set at his expansive Y-6 ranch, where this particular film takes place. In fact, Irwin's daughters Frances and Pauline appear as extras in the film, which also features the Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo festival, the largest in the world at the time and still among the highest attended today. Sold for the first time at Heritage, this bright stone litho one sheet is the only known surviving copy from this film, and has had touchup applied to the folds, small chips in the borders, and tears from the borders slightly into the background. There was a tear from the left border into the top left logo, a horizontal tear under "Cheyenne" above the title, and two vertical tears to the left of the title. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
