An Original Vintage Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh) (Learn More)

Marihuana, the 1935 Dwain Esper marijuana marihuana pot weed drug crime thriller ("Daring Drug Expose!"; "Horror Shame Despair!"; "Today's headlines.... Tomorrow's despair....!"; "What happens at marihuana parties?"; "Lust crime sorrow despair shame hate"; "Not recommended for children"; "Smoke that gets in youth's eyes!"; "Misery"; "Weird orgies, wild parties, unleashed passions!"; "America's Crime Creator!"; "A puff of smoke changed their lives!"; "The weed with roots in Hell!", "The sweet pill...that makes life bitter!"; "The most daring picture ever made!") starring Harley Wood, Gloria Browne, Pat Carlyle, Juanita Crosland, Dorothy Dehn, Paul Ellis, Richard Erskine, Hugh McArthur and Hal Taggart. At the time this movie was meant to be a "daring drug expose", but it is now laughable and a camp classic, and posters from the first release of the movie in 1935 (and the roadshow releases that followed it in the late 1930s and early 1940s) are both rare and extremely desired by collectors.
If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that it is impossible to date this poster. The movie was first released in 1935, but it was taken around the U.S. and played in individual towns and cities over the next 20 years. Looking at the poster and the quality of the printing, I would guess it is possibly from the early 1940s, but there is no way of knowing for sure. No matter when it is from (whether the 1930s or 1940s), it is certainly a wonderful poster! If anyone knows more about this poster, please e-mail us and we will post it here.
