An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Three-Sheet Movie Poster (measures 41" x 81") (Learn More)

The Exile, the 1931 Oscar Micheaux romantic black African American melodrama (black African American movie pioneer Oscar Micheaux, one of the single most important men in the history of black African American filmmaking, wanted to make his first "talking" movie, which would be the first all-black cast talking movie a sure-fire success, so he remade his very first movie, the 1919 movie entitled "The Homesteader", which had been adapted from his very first novel, the 1913 book entitled "The Conquest"; "Mighty Modern All Talking Epic Of Negro Life"; "Adapted from - 'The Conquest'") starring ("A Cast of Colored Stars") Eunice Brooks, Stanley Morrell, and Celeste Cole

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this movie was the first all-black "talking" movie, and that it was produced by Oscar Micheaux, perhaps the most important single man in the history of black filmmaking. Posters from ANY of Micheaux's movies are extremely rare, and I have never seen or heard of another example of this three-sheet!

Condition: very good. The poster had creases, tears, and tiny areas of paper loss along some foldlines. The only significant area of paper loss within the image area was in the bottom of the cheek of the woman at middle right, extending into the top of her neck. There were creases, smudges, tears, and areas of paper loss around the edges of the poster. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was really expertly backed. The defects within the image area were wonderfully restored! There are not at all noticeable or distracting, and yet only the defects described above were repaired, and the poster in no way has a heavily painted look to it, typical of restorers who try to make a poster look "perfect". This great (and likely unique) poster looks fantastic, and I can't imagine any collector who would not be proud to display it on their wall!
