    Description

    The Life and Adventures of Buffalo Bill (Pawnee Bill Film Co., 1912). One Sheet (28" X 42.5"). In the early 1900s Walter Barnsdale started a "traveling moving picture show" company that played at carnivals and circuses. Presenting more than 100 reels of films projected with some of the best lighting equipment available (run by an electric generator), Barnsdale brought the show to people who couldn't get to the city. The Life and Adventures of Buffalo Bill was one of several films that he showcased that starred the legendary William F. Cody. This is a gorgeous stone litho poster done by Riverside Litho of Milwaukee. It has numerous vignettes of cowboys performing various tasks, highlighted by a cowgirl in the central medallion roping a steer. The image of the cowgirl was likely based on the real life Lucille Mulhall. It is framed by a colorful design copied from Indian blankets. It has been mounted on linen and is in excellent condition. This great poster has crossover appeal to Western collectors, Buffalo Bill specialists and movie poster aficionados.
