Original British 11 inch x 17 inch Trade Advertisement for the 1944 William A. Wellman Western BUFFALO BILL starring Joel McCrea, Maureen O’Hara, Linda Darnell, Thomas Mitchell, Edgar Buchanan and Anthony Quinn.
The story of William “Buffalo Bill” Cody, legendary westerner, from his days as an army scout to his later activities as owner of a Wild West show.
The advertisement artwork is by A. “Jock” W. Hinchliffe.
Hinchliffe was born in Perth, Scotland. In 1953 he had a studio in Chalk Farm, North London, where he produced a series of six oil paintings as publicity for 20th Century Fox’s “The Robe”. He had been engaged by Fox in 1926 and produced posters and ads continuously for them, and for Disney, well into the 1960s.
The Advertisement is in very good condition with one vertical centre fold and 4 holes along it.
Trade advertisements are colourful posters aimed at cinema managers, which were either slipped in, or part of, the weekly film trade journals which were available to them by subscription but were not sold to the general public. Most were designed to be pulled out, and some were attached by staples. Most have the date in tiny letters in one of the top corners.
