Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 102 cm.) one sheet poster style B, USA. Richard Arlen, Barry MacKay, Roy Emerton, Lili Palmer, dir: Milton Rosmer; Gaumont British Picture Corp. of America. The epic grandeur of locations of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada, and areas of British Columbia (with studio photography done in London) served as a backdrop for this story about the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway during the 1880s. The characters include two card sharks that come into town, start a saloon fight and are ordered to work on the railway to serve their term, with one falling for the town floozy. American star Richard Arlen was featured and Lili Palmer would grow in prominence during the 1940s. Epic art with a focus on the beefcake on this rarely seen poster is by Fred Kulz. Kulz was an American illustrator who worked from the early twentieth century through the 1930s. He became an in-house poster artist for Universal during the early-1930s and his most famous film-related work is for the pre-production art of FRANKENSTEIN (1931) featuring Bela Lugosi in the title role. Released through 20th Century Fox, this poster includes the TCF copyright at the bottom and is an example of their superb stone litho posters of the time. Poster is on linen. It displays normal wear, particularly at the folds and junctions, which have some touch-up. The bottom fold has an area of missing paper between the title words "Silent" and "Barriers" which has been crudely painted in. Two tears at the top middle blank white margin are evident and two chips at the bottom center border edge are present. NEAR FINE. Bookseller Inventory #
