    Two posters for the film Harlem on the Prairie, featuring two variations of artwork. The movie was a western musical that follows the story of the search for hidden gold that had been lost when all but one member of a gang of outlaws were killed in a fight with a rival posse. When Doc Clayburn, the last member of the gang, is mortally wounded in his search, he gives the treasure map to a young rider in the hopes that he will find the gold and return it to its rightful owners.

    Condition: Both posters have creasing, and there are some separations and small holes where the folds created weakness in the paper. Toning and some small tears at the edges. On one of the posters, some of the separations and paper loss at the lower margin have been repaired with tape on verso.
