    Description

    The Oregon Trail (Republic, 1936). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Although this film, basically a remake of John Wayne's earlier effort,The Big Trail (1930), is now lost - the only one of Wayne's early films to bear that unfortunate distinction - this poster remains as one of the finest ever to feature America's hero. Republic rarely issued stone litho posters for their B Westerns, but they pulled out all the stops when they created this beauty. The result is an absolute classic. Few copies of this poster are known to exist; best current estimate is that there are fewer than half a dozen extant examples. Whether you're a Wayne collector, a Western fan, or merely someone who appreciates outstanding poster images, this head-turning stone litho one sheet is for you! Touchup to the folds, a small chip in the left border, a small chip in the top crossfold (above Wayne's eye), and some slight chipping in the vertical fold in the "N" of "Oregon." Very Fine- on Linen.
