An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh; measures 27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm]) (Learn More)

one of three 1940s stock poster created by Republic Pictures for use by theaters showing re-releases of Roy Rogers cowboy western movies. He was incredibly popular in the 1940s, and they issued one poster in 1940, which has him on a rearing horse, another in 1941 that has a smiling image of Roy in the lower left, and one in 1949 that has him in the upper right (the first two we were able to date from their litho numbers, and the third one has a 1949 NSS number). Theaters would order these posters which had a large blank area. Sometimes the studio would overprint the stock poster with the title of a specific movie, and sometimes they were sent a series of large paper snipes with the titles of specific entries of the series, so the theater could paste in each snipe as needed, thus getting many posters for the price of one. Sometimes stock posters are found with blank snipe areas. Most collectors consider them more valuable with a printed snipe attached, or with an overprinted snipe area.

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that the poster is undated, but it has a litho number, and comparing this number to our massive database of litho numbers taken from actual movie posters, we can determine that this poster is almost certainly from 1941!
