Original 40x60 Poster from Western Poster Company San Francisco Fine Plus

Unusual 40x60 silkscreen poster made for the release of RIDING HIGH (1950). The film starred Bing Crosby, Coleen Gray, Charles Bickford, Frances Gifford, William Demarest, Ward Bond, Raymond Walburn and the horse Highland Dale. The film was directed by Frank Capra. RIDING HIGH is a light musical, a remake of Capra's film BROADWAY BILL (1934). It has a large and talented cast, typical of a Capra film and Robert Riskin, a longtime associate of Capra, wrote the screenplay. The film runs 112 minutes and was a modest success, making about $400,000 for Paramount. Mostly the tone is upbeat, but there's a tragic twist for at the end. No spoilers. One interesting aspect of the movie's production is that the songs from Crosby were filmed live rather than being lip-synced from a recording as was the normal practice with musicals. The poster is an unusual one in two respects. First is it a 40x60, which is a generally uncommon large format size. Secondly, the poster is silkscreened. It was manufactured by an independent poster company, Western Poster, San Francisco. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic, vintage poster for this film, dating from the first release of 1950. Condition is very fine, rolled. MovieArt does not sell reproductions.
