Original Vintage Theatrical Paperbacked Jumbo Window Card Movie Poster (measures 22" x 28") (Learn More)

Stagecoach, the classic 1939 John Ford (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award for this film) cowboy western ("A powerful story of 9 strange people"; "Excitement That Rises To A Fever Pitch - and never lets you go!"; "A Strange Frontier Incident of 1885"; "2 Women on a desperate journey with 7 Strange Men"; "Nine oddly assorted strangers start out by stagecoach for Lordsburg, New Mexico. Each has his own personal reasons for wanting to get there. Then strange things begin to happen. The telegraph is mysteriously cut... the way station burned to the ground. Danger grows steadily more menacing... until... as convention breaks down, the lives of the travelers are tangled together... you live with them this strange adventure... tense, full of action... deeply moving..."; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award; about a stagecoach that is carrying a group of people across the plains through Apache territory and personal differences) starring Claire Trevor (as Dallas, the "marked" woman), John Wayne (as The Ringo Kid), Andy Devine (as a babbling driver), John Carradine (as a gambling "gentleman"), Thomas Mitchell (winner of the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; as a drunk doctor), Louise Platt (as a pregnant upper class lady), George Bancroft (as a sheriff), Donald Meek (as a whiskey salesman), Berton Churchill, Tim Holt, and Tom Tyler (in a small but key role). Note that John Wayne had received the starring role in "The Big Trail" in 1930, and it had done poorly, and his starring days seemed to be over! In the mid-1930s, he successfully starred in a series of low budget B-westerns, but was not considered for major productions. But in 1939, when Gary Cooper turned down the lead in "Stagecoach", John Ford took a chance on John Wayne, but the studio thought so little of him that he wasn't pictured on the one-sheet or most of the advertising!

Condition: good to very good. the poster was paperbacked; prior to restoration the poster was tattered around all the edges, extending into the edges of the image. The image area was in pretty nice condition but there was stains and paper loss in the middle left of the card extending into the head of the man at lower left and the "STA" of "STAGECOACH". Whoever restored the card laid new paper over all of the white borders, but this was so well done that most people would not realize it if it were not pointed out to them. They also did expert restoration around the edges of the card and in the middle left of the image and this was extremely well done. From any distance away, the card looks quite nice. Note that there was no restoration in any of the head shots other than that of the man at lower left and the very top of the head of the bald man at top left. I would think almost any collector would be happy to display this rare jumbo window card on their wall!
