RKO Radio Pictures Original Three Sheet Poster (41x81) Linen Backed Fine Plus Condition

RKO Radio Pictures Original U.S. Three-sheet poster (41x81) for the John Ford western, FORT APACHE (1948) starring John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Shirley Temple, and Ward Bond. This film stands apart from many westerns of the late 40s and 50s as a far more thoughtful and fair interpretation of US/Indian relations in the mid-19th century, and is considered one of Ford's masterpieces. Wayne plays Capt. York, a veteran Civil War commander assigned to take charge of a remote outpost in Arizona. He arrives to find acting commander Lt. Col. Thursday (Henry Fonda) undermining the local Apache leaders and turning a blind eye to the government liaison's corruption. As York and Thursday butt heads over whether to treat the natives with respect or force them to submit, the Apache leader Cochise (Miguel Inclan) organizes an uprising that slaughters most of the cavalrymen a la Little Bighorn. One of 24 John Ford films starring John Wayne, FORT APACHE also features a 19-year old Shirley Temple. The poster was a theater-used copy with very good color that had some distresses and minor tears and a few small holes. We had the poster restored and it presents beautifully. We have graded the poster in fine plus condition. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is a vintage, authentic U.S. three sheet for this film. Three sheets are large format poster comprised of two separate panels which are joined together to present as one poster. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
