R25 Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Folded Six-Sheet Movie Poster (measures 81" x 81") (Learn More)

the 1925 re-edited version (with new scenes, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Little Big Horn) of Custer's Last Fight, the 1912 Thomas Ince silent cowboy western ("The Big, New, and Only Original Frontier Spectacle of the Celebrated Battle of Little Big Horn"; "The Battle of No Survivors"; "Educational - Every School Boy and Girl Should See It"; "A Picture All Should See - Man, Woman, and Child"; "On The Screen In Its Full Glory!"; "Stupendous Colossal Gigantic"; "A picture that 'hews to the line,' letting the chips fall where they may"; "The Greatest Wild West Feature Ever Filmed"; "Coming!! The Mighty Epic Spectacle of the Old-Time West"; "Coming!"; "Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Battle at Little Big Horn"; "The greatest Indian frontier spectacle ever shown"; "Dedicated to the Spirit of the American Pioneer"; "Famous Indian Uprising in 1876 Under the Bloodthirsty Sitting BullL"; "Taken in the Black Hills. Over a Year in the Making") starring Francis Ford (in the title role as General George Armstrong Custer), Grace Cunard, Charles K. French, William Eagle Shirt, and J. Barney Sherry. In 1925 (just ahead of the 50th Anniversary of the Massacre at the Little Big Horn, known as "Custer's Last Stand") , the original movie was re-cut and some new footage was shot and the movie was re-presented with all new posters and lobby cards. I have never seen or heard of ANY 1912 movie paper item of any sort from this movie, so items from the 1925 re-edited version are the only option if one wants to get something from this movie!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: This six-sheet was printed in 4 sections (which were combined during the linenbacking process).

Condition: very good to fine. The poster is linenbacked; prior to restoration the poster was in excellent condition (it just had a few minor defects); the poster was well linenbacked and looks great. It needs to be noted that the poster is slightly "lifting" at the very bottom of the poster. I am sure any good restorer could easily re-glue this area without any difficulty.
