Original Italian 39x55 Poster Folded Theater-Used Average Condition

Original Italian Poster 39x55 for the 1940 western comedy TRAIL OF THE VIGILANTES, directed by Allan Dwan. The film was made by Universal in Hollywood, released in December of 1940 in the United States, but was only imported into Italy after World War II. The film stars Franchot Tone, Warren William, Peggy Moran, Broderick Crawford and Andy Devine. Director Dwan explained in published accounts that the film started out as a western drama, but the structure of the screenplay was so weak that the film was turned into a comedy at shooting. This poster has not been seen at auction in the United States. The poster is signed by an artist Marino, but we don't know very much about the artist except that his imprimatur is on many wonderful Italian posters, including posters for THE LAS VEGAS STORY, THE INFORMER and the king of all noirs OUT OF THE PAST. This poster was used in a theater and shows some significant signs of wear. We believe that the poster would look great if it were cleaned and linen-backed. Ask us about poster conservation services. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is an authentic Italian 39x55 poster for this film. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
