Footnotes

  • This is one of only three known six-sheet posters from "The Outlaw" to have come up for auction; the first one sold (amid much controversy) at Christie's South Kensington in March, 2003 for approximately $80,000; the second one sold at Christie's New York in November, 2003 for $33,460. This particular poster, offered now at Bonhams & Butterfields, came from the original owner who obtained it in the late 1940s. She taped it together at one point (very slight outlines of where tape was can still be seen on poster), but basically kept it folded in its original separate panels, which is how it was delivered here to this auction house. B&B then took it to Poster Mountain in North Hollywood to have it mounted to linen for display purposes, but no restoration or touch-up work was done. It remains as it has been for the last 63 years, with the exception of its current mounting.

    This poster is being sold with a reserve.
