    Description

    Tom Mix and The Wonder Horse Tony (Fox, 1920s). Stock Promotional One Sheet (28.5" X 41").
    "Tony" (1899-1942) was the first horse to bear the designation "The Wonder Horse," which refers to the equine companions of cowboy heroes in the early Western films. Actor Tom Mix purchased Tony for $600, and the pair went on to make over two dozen films together. When Mix placed his hand prints in the cement outside Grauman's Chinese Theater in 1927, Tony's hoof prints were placed alongside them. His high intelligence and ability to perform remarkable stunts earned him equal billing with his human co-star. This promotional poster from Fox Studios espoused Tony as a model horse, over and above the purebred Morgan. The colors are impressively bright, and Mix and the horses are finely rendered on this rare stone litho poster. Touchup has been applied to the folds, a chip in the left border at the horizontal fold, and a chip in the bottom right corner. The linen has been trimmed up to the borders. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
