    "Sun-burned and gun-burned... Like the violent land he rode!"; "From Tom Lea's bold and powerful novel... A magnificent motion picture!"; "From Tom Lea's powerful best-selling novel... A magnificent motion picture!"; "Tom Lea's powerful best-selling novel is now on the screen!"; "Beneath the sun - a land like no other!"; "Beneath the sombrero - a man like no other!"; "They all came to this violent land on the edge of a continent!"; "the jangling spur ...the broad sombrero ...and the scarlet petticoat -They all came crossing paths and gunsights ...in the biggest of all frontiers ...this greatest of all adventures!"; "This pistolero... Who was as proud as the mighty black stallion he rode... This man who hungered for the softness of a woman and the clean skies of 'The Wonderful Country'!"; "Face of a pistolero..."; "Sun-burned and gun-burned - like the violent land he rode wild and raging - like the twisting Rio he crossed... proud and fiery - like the coal-black stallion he rode... filled with a mountain of hunger - for a woman, and the place they called The Wonderful Country". Colourful, underrated Western with Mitchum as the gringo pistolero who crosses the river South of the Border on a gun-running mission, and on a series of encounters discovers aspects of his past.

Linen Backing Specialists

We restore and linen back film posters.

We can linen back any posters you see on our website you like or your own movie poster.

A vast majority of pre-1980's movie posters were issued folded by the studios. Linen-backing achieves the effect of flattening the folds as well as making the poster more visually alluring, whilst conserving and preserving the piece.

By linen backing these posters, the folds and minor defects become virtually undetectable at normal viewing distance.
