    Description

    The Lawless Frontier (Monogram, 1934). Stock One Sheet (27" X 40").
    John Wayne got his start in films with a little help from director John Ford, who gave him bit parts in some of his early movies, years before casting Wayne in his breakout role in Stagecoach. Wayne's early training included nearly seventy low budget Westerns, most for Monogram, and this is a fun early example with director Robert N. Bradbury and co-stars Sheila Terry and George "Gabby" Hayes. This fabulous art deco one sheet had an extra vertical fold which was apparent to the left and right of the center fold. There was a clean tear from the lower credits through the second "l" in "Lawless" up to the name "John." There is a bit of white touch-up on a few blemishes and there were pinholes in the corners. There was some minor writing on the reverse that is apparent from the front, next to the Tooker Logo. This is an outstanding graphic on this early Western one sheet. Fine on Linen.
