Item Description
32.5x58.5" tall die-cut cardboard standee w/wonderful design for the original release of the 1958 theatrical feature based on the popular "The Lone Ranger" TV series starring Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels, who both reprised their roles from the TV series. Standee features full body image of Moore as Lone Ranger at right, w/image of Tonto on Scout in bkg. Action scenes (again featuring Lone Ranger) at bottom. Horizontal fold at center as issued. Standee shows moderate edge wear w/small creases and tears w/a number of 1" tears along bottom and left/right sides of bottom half. Back does not have easel standee as produced, instead, this display was secured w/reinforced cardboard discs w/string at middle (now broken). Fine overall, but still retains vibrant color. While studios made standees for a high percentage of Hollywood productions, very few are known to survive from pre-1970 movies. This is a high-end promotional item that saw very limited distribution as most theaters chose to display the basic movie poster for promotional purposes. Very rare the only other example we know of sold at auction for $1,134 in 2003.
