An 1961 Re-Release Vintage Theatrical 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Movie Still (Learn More)

Bordertown, the 1935 Archie Mayo (billed as "Archie L. Mayo") romantic love triangle murder crime film noir ("Immortal drama with immortal stars!"; "Now He's a Fugitive from the Inhuman Bondage of a Female Scarface"; about a Hispanic man who goes to work as a bouncer in a cafe in Mexico on the border by California, and he rises up to become the partner of the owner, but the owner's boss likes him in the wrong way, and she wants him to conspire with her and kill the boss so that they can own the casino and be together, but he has different ideas) starring Paul Muni, Bette Davis, Margaret Lindsay, Eugene Pallette, and Robert Barrat. Note that Warner Bros. in 1940 "lifted" a huge chunk of the plot of this movie and reused it as part of "They Drive By Night", and of course, there are also many similarities to the plot of "The Postman Always Rings Twice"! Note that there is something unusual about this movie. When it was first released, Paul Muni was Warner Bros. top star and Bette Davis received secondary billing to him. When she quickly rose to stardom after this movie was released, the movie was given a quick re-release in 1937, where the two stars were now equally billed. This quick re-release likely explains why first release 1935 paper from this movie is incredibly scarce (and also, the 1934 lobby cards and smaller posters were on a flat finish, while the 1937 re-release ones were on a linen-like paper, which is the reverse of how it is for many other classic 1930s Warner Bros. titles).

Important Added Info: Note that this still is dated 1961, but it is likely not from a 1961 re-release of this movie, but rather likely from a movie that Bette Davis made that year (or a documentary about her), and for that movie they would have released a series of stills showing her in some of her most famous roles. So this is likely not from an actual re-release of "Border Town", but it does show a scene from Border Town. If anyone knows more about this still, please e-mail us and we will post it here.
