    The Searchers (Warner Bros., 1956). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. British Quad (30" X 40").
    Heritage is pleased to offer this British quad for the first time. After years of making memorable Westerns together, John Wayne and director John Ford created their lasting masterpiece to the Western genre and to cinema itself when they released The Searchers. Many consider this to be one of the most scenic Westerns ever filmed and, with the beautiful sunset over Monument Valley featured on this gorgeous poster, it is not difficult to see why. The vast landscape pictured, empty save for the Mittens Buttes, John Wayne, and Jeffrey Hunter, helps to convey the conviction with which Wayne as Ethan Edwards searches for his niece in the film. As vibrant as the day it was printed, this British quad shows such indications of usage as edge and fold wear, minor fold separations, pinholes, and small tears. Also present is mild creasing, unobtrusive stains and smudges, faint edge toning, and a bit of ink writing in the lower border.

    Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
