    Description

    The Life of Buffalo Bill (Pawnee Bill Film Co., 1912). One Sheet (28.25" X 42") mounted on linen. William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody was one of America's great showmen at the turn of the century. Capitalizing on his reputation as a Civil War soldier, adventurer, and frontiersman, Cody toured the country with his show, "Buffalo Bill's Wild West," which eventually incorporated more than 1,200 performers, including the likes of Annie Oakley, Sitting Bull and his braves, and more. One of the most important and recognizable celebrities of the early twentieth century, Cody is still revered by many as a great American hero. The poster offered here, promotes a film version of his popular Custer show in which Cody, of course, played the doomed General George Armstrong Custer. If you're a student of American history, this is a rare opportunity to add a significant piece of Americana, from this rare and early silent, three reel film, to your collection. The condition is excellent.
