Original Pan-American Motion Picture Corp One Sheet Poster (27x41) for the silent western crime drama, A DEBTOR TO THE LAW (1919) starring Henry Starr and Paul Curry. The film's leading man (Starr) actually led a gang of bank robbers in Oklahoma at turn of the century. In 1915 his gang decided to rob two banks at one time in Stroud Oklahoma. But the then 17-year-old Paul Curry foiled the plan and shot both Starr and another gang member. Lawmen captured the rest of the gang, and they were eventually sent to prison. When Starr was released from prison five years later, he decided to make a movie of the bungled bank robbery. He went back to Stroud to film the movie, using the actual tellers he had robbed as extras. Starr played himself and hired Curry, the man who shot him, to play himself. Starr was shot to death two years later in Arkansas while trying to rob a bank. Originally folded, this beautiful stone lithograph one sheet poster is in very good condition. Presents beautifully.
