DICK TRACY (1937) Republic Pictures Chapter One Serial One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Linen-Backed

In 1937, Republic Pictures released a serial based on the Chester Gould newspaper comic strip, DICK TRACY. The serial had fifteen different chapters, and, as with many serials, each chapter had its own posters. Here is the Chapter 1 one-sheet for this classic serial, one of the rarest serial posters. Chapter 1 one sheets were usually uncluttered with the inset photos that are found on posters for subsequent chapters. Ralph Byrd played the fearless detective. He's out to get a villain called simply "The Spider". We are introduced to this nefarious character in the first chapter, "The Spider Strikes." You can rest assured, as millions of moviegoers did in 1937, that this Spider-Guy is no match for Tracy. The serial also stared Kay Hughes, Smiley Burnette, Carleton Young, Francis X. Bushman, John Dilson, Harrison Greene, Buddy Roosevelt and Roy Barcroft. This poster in in very fine condition. Colors are vivid. The poster is mounted on an older linen, and is in no need, in our opinion, of rebacking. For serial collectors, this is one of the best posters! MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. one-sheet poster for this film. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas does not sell reproductions.
