    Description

    The Searchers (Warner Brothers, 1956). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This true classic of the American cinema is considered by many to be one of the greatest Westerns ever made. Director John Ford's film of a war weary ex-Confederate soldier who becomes obsessed with hunting down the Comanche tribe who has massacred his family and kidnapped his young niece, has been copied by many, but never equaled. John Wayne gives the performance of his career, in the role he claimed to be his favorite, as Ethan Edwards. The cast included many of the Ford company of players including Ward Bond, Harry Carey Jr., along with Jeffrey Hunter, Vera Miles, and a young Natalie Wood who would play the niece kidnapped by the Comanche, Scar. And of course, the scenery of Monument Valley decorates this incredible poster with deep color saturation. Touchup has been applied to the folds, pinholes in the top corners, and a couple of mild mirrored tears in the left of the background. There is a bit of touchup in all four corners. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
