You’ll need to make a little room for this highly scarce, breath-taking gem of a find!. Spectacular artwork. In addition to the breath-taking super large close-up, are the other two terrific images of the Duke! * See enlargeable image above
Note: This is the first time in our 39 years collecting we have acquired this poster. It is also one of the earliest pieces of John Wayne Original Vintage Movie Paper we’ve ever offered. A One Sheet for this film sold in July 2006 for $9200! This particular half sheet is Very Rare, as we were not able to find another one of these Original half sheets ever appearing on the market before this one.
Important Added Info: Note that John Wayne had his first chance at stardom in 1930 with “The Big Trail”, and when that was not successful, he spent a few years in minor roles, and then became a major B-western star, and stayed that way until 1939, when he made “Stagecoach” and became a major star. At that point, all of his mid 1930s B-westerns were re-released, and no doubt that adds to the rarity of original movie posters from those movies.. Original first release 1934-35 movie paper of any sort from this movie is incredibly scarce!
The New Frontier (Republic, 1935). Folded, Half Sheet (22″ X 28″).
When Monogram studios merged with Lone Star Productions and several other producers to form Republic Studios in 1935, John Wayne was one of the stars used to launch the new franchise. This Western was Wayne’s second with Republic, a studio with which he would continue to work with until the early 1950s. Republic produced some of the most attractive posters in the 1930s
The story of a wild frontier town and the man who tamed it, this Western was John Wayne’s second film for the new studio, Republic (after Westward Ho). The newly opened studio was formed in 1935 from six Poverty Row studios in financial trouble, including Monogram and Mascot Pictures.

Why I love half sheet movie posters:
Over the past 40 years collecting I’ve acquired a special affection for vintage half sheet movie posters. First, they are the ideal size to frame and display. At an impressive but not overwhelming 22×28”, half sheets are large enough to deliver that Wow factor, but not so large they require an entire wall space and exorbitant frame cost. And, the 22×28” frames are readily available at most craft stores like Michaels.
Secondly, I love half sheets because their landscape design often resulted in superior artwork and graphics. Some of my favorites half sheets are from the John Wayne Republic pictures from the mid 1930s that feature a young Duke before he became a major star after 1939. .
