    The Bull-Dogger (Norman, 1921).
    One sheet, linen-backed poster
    28" x 41.75"
    Jacksonville; [1921]

    A silent western starring Bill Pickett, Bennie Turpin, Steve Reynolds, and Anita Bush. Pickett, a world champion rodeo stuntman, was cast by the Norman Film Manufacturing Company in two feature films during the early 1920s: this title and The Crimson Skull the following year. Not much is known about these films except that the production studio was based in Florida and produced films featuring all-black casts tailored for black audiences. Pickett is acknowledged as the originator of the bulldogging technique, which is wrestling a steer to the ground by grabbing its horns. He was inducted into the National Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1972.

    Condition: Minor wear at edges, with light soiling, foxing, and flattened folds. There appear to be some small areas of restoration, else very good.
