Rare Film Posters



Original U.S. 81 inch x 81 inch 6-Sheet Poster for the 1950 William A. Berke Jungle Jim Adventure CAPTIVE GIRL, written for the screen by Carroll Young and starring Johnny Weissmuller, Buster Crabbe, Anita Lhoest, Rick Vallin and John Dehner.

Jungle Jim is out to save Joan Martindale from an evil witch doctor whilst simultaneously fighting Barton, an evil treasure hunter.

Poster art by Glenn Cravath (1897 – 1964). Cravath started as an illustrator for the New York Journal in the 1920’s. He worked for King Features Syndicates as a comic illustrator and did Sunday Frank Buck comics for the New York Journal. In 1928 he began to freelance for movie studios, among them RKO and Columbia. His last published work was The Unforgiven with Burt Lancaster in 1960.

He died in January 1964, leaving his house and collection (containing copies of his published work) to his son Douglas (1918-2002). Douglas, in turn, kept his father’s collection intact until his own death in August 2002, leaving no heirs. Because almost none of his artwork was ever sold, Cravath is a relatively little known artist today.

Among the films he worked on were Bring ‘Em Back Alive (1932), King Kong (1933), Son of Kong (1933), Call of the Wild (1935), Clive of India (1935), Elephant Boy (1937), The Big Broadcast of 1938, Blondie Meets the Boss (1939), The Reluctant Dragon (1941), Jungle Cavalcade (1941), Song of India (1949), Apache War Smoke (1952), The Petty Girl (1955), as well as Jungle Jim (1948 – 55).

The poster is in very good folded condition in 4 separate sheets.
