    Description

    The Dark Command (Republic, 1940). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    John Wayne and Claire Trevor are together again in this tale set in Pre-Civil War era Kansas Territory. The villain (portrayed by Walter Pidgeon) goes by the name of Will Cantrell but was based on the real-life and notorious William Quantrill who led his Raiders pillaging the Kansas Territory. Republic must have known they had an "A" picture on their hands and cast their current B Western mega-stars Roy Rogers and Gabby Hayes in supporting roles as well. The title card has pinholes in the borders, tape on the verso, and a small scratch. The scene cards show the same signs of wear, as well as creasing, corner bends, border tears and stains, a replaced corner, and two cards have a slight trim along the top and right edge. Fine-.
