The Covered Wagon, the classic 1923 James Cruze silent winning-the-West pioneer wagon train romantic adventure cowboy western ("A wonder picture that Will thrill you"; "From the novel by Emerson Hough"; one of the most major westerns of the 1920s, it was made at a time when westerns were thought to be losing their popularity, but this movie single-handedly revived the genre; set in 1848, about two wagon trains that travel from Kansas City to California and Oregon via the Oregon Trail, and the great difficulties they encounter along the way) starring Lois Wilson, J. Warren Kerrigan, Alan Hale Sr., Charles Ogle, Ethel Wales, Ernest Torrence, Tully Marshall, Guy Oliver, John Fox, Tim McCoy (who is billed as an "Indian liaison"), and Jack Padjan. Note that Paramount gave this movie a really major release, and virtually every poster on the movie has completely different artwork from all the other posters! Note that the advertising for this movie states that "3,000 actors spend 3 months on a location 80 miles from the railroad. 1,000 Indians were used and the livestock included 600 oxen, 1,000 horses, and 500 mules"!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: very good to fine. There is a water stain in the right of the bottom blank border, slightly extending into the edge of the green border above it, but you really can't see it in the green at all. There is surface paper loss in the top left corner and a tiny stain in the middle of the right blank border. There are a few light black scuff marks scattered in the lower left of the image and into the "THE" in the title, and a similar scuff mark above the center of the word "Paramount". Other than the above, the card is in excellent condition (especially considering it is 85 years-old) and it is completely unrestored!
