An Original Vintage Theatrical Unfolded Autographed Half-Sheet Movie Poster (1/2sh; measures 22" x 28") (Learn More)

Emperor of the North Pole (also released as "Emperor of the North"), the 1973 Robert Aldrich Depression era hobos-riding-railroads train melodrama ("Meet the Emperor of the North"; "If you can ride Shack's train and live- you'll be Emperor of the North"; "Lee Marvin & Ernest Borgnine meet in the fight of the century."; "From the makers of 'The Dirty Dozen'"; "It's not a place... It's a prize"; "This movie is about one hell of a man who lived when Dillinger was slamming banks, and Roosevelt was awakening the nation. He's a hard-time fast-tracker who's been where it's mean. A grizzly with a sense of humor, an adventurer with holes in his pockets. A wandering rebel, living off the land by his wits and his fists. He goes it alone, he does what he wants - for the beautiful pure sweet hell of it. Who's going to stop him - you? Now he's taking on his biggest run. A challenge no one ever survived. That's why he has to do it!"; "Only one man can be..."; "Written by Christopher Knopf") starring Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Keith Carradine, Charles Tyner, Malcolm Atterbury, Harry Caesar, Simon Oakland, and Maurice 'Steamtrain' Graham (real life hobo who likely had a cameo role in this movie!)

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this half-sheet has been personally autographed (signed) by Ernest Borgnine (it reads "To John, you're the best")! Note that this movie was first issued as "Emperor of the North Pole". But within days of the movie's release, it hit the studio executives that it sounded like it could be a Christmas movie, so they quickly changed the posters to "Emperor of the North". This is the poster from the release as "Emperor of the North Pole", and it is far more rare than the other style! Also note that this poster has never been machine folded! Most half-sheet posters were folded once horizontally and once vertically right off of the printing press. It is very difficult to find an unfolded example of most half-sheets, especially from before 1970!

Condition: very good to fine.
