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 Pony Express days are coming to an end, with riders John Blair (John Wayne) and his friend Larry Adams (Lane Chandler), both about 75 pounds too heavy for the original job description, out of a job.
