Poster for "The Great Motion Picture the Life of Jesse James" (a.k.a. Jesse James Under the Black Flag)


No place




Broadside poster printed on both sides, with illustrations. 70.5x26 cm (27¾x10¼").

Poster advertising the 1930 film release, which was actually two silent films from 1921 edited together with added narration. This movie claims to tell the true story of outlaw Jesse James and how he's been misjudged by the history books. It stars his actual son Jesse James, Jr., though this is not noted in the advertising piece, nor is the title of the film as released. It was the only Jesse James film released in 1930.

Lot Amendments

A few neat tape repairs; very good or better. Rare.
