 Original Vintage Lobby Card Movie Poster (11x14")
Starring John Wayne

Artist:  Harold von Schmidt

It has been several years since we’ve been fortunate to acquire original vintage lobby cards for the John Wayne and John Ford epic cavalry classic, “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon”.   And we  recently acquired two!   And with the spectacular border art by master artist Harold von Schmidt, makes these vintage cinematic treasures particularly collectible and desirable for irresistible home decor.

The artist for the border art was Harold von Schmidtwho was an illustrator for Saturday Evening Post.

Condition: Excellent with bright colors and no pinholes, tears or stains like most vintage lobby cards.

NOTE: For whatever reason, most of the original vintage lobby cards we encounter for this John Wayne classic are usually in rough condition with significant tears, stains, pinholes, fading, etc.  As you can see from this gorgeously preserved gem, this superior condition one is a beauty!

She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (RKO, 1949). Lobby Card  (11x14”)
John Ford, fascinated by the landscape of the American southwest, and with the legends of the Cavalry ordered to protect the civilians settling the region, created an epic trilogy starring John Wayne and his company of players. In this outing, Wayne as Captain Brittles must evacuate the local women as they are expecting a raid from an Indian war party. This wonderful and very colorful poster lobby card depicts Wayne, in a dramatic scene with his ca-stars.

Under the capable command of John Ford, John Wayne delivers one of his finest performances in the second film of Ford's "Cavalry Trilogy." The grandeur of Monument Valley is expertly captured in Technicolor by cinematographer Winton Hoch, winning him an Academy Award. Joanne Dru and John Agar also turn in excellent performances in this true Western classic. 

She Wore a Yellow Ribbon is the second in John Ford's "Cavalry Trilogy," and was the only one to be shot in Technicolor. John Wayne stars as an Army captain on the eve of retirement who must quiet a potential Indian uprising. Wayne is ably supported by such Ford regulars as John Agar, Ben Johnson, Harry Carey, Jr., and Victor McLaglen. The magnificent artwork of Wayne and his co-stars, including Joanne Dru in her third film, make this arguably the best poster art of the three advertising campaigns in the cavalry trilogy.
