SUBJECT: This is a cool old vintage Hollywood promo sheet for actor Charles Starrett, famous in the 1940s and 1950s for the Durango Kid Westerns he made for Columbia Pictures. The photograph (taken on the studio back lot) features Starrett posing on "Raider," the horse he rode in many of his Durango Kid movies, 64 in all. Starrett's "autobiography" is printed on the back of the promo sheet, but it was written by someone in Columbia's PR department, of course. And, Hollywood star or not, there was a war on, so the promo sheet reminds fans to buy war bonds and stamps. Just an all-around great piece of vintage horse ephemera, I think.

HORSE NOTES: Check out the fancy face chain ornament on this handsome white gelding. The super zoom reveals the strings used to anchor the row of silver conchos to either side of the bridle nose band. Clever.

ITEM DETAILS: This original vintage color promo sheet measures 8 x 10 inches. It has two hole punches at the top, with glued-on punch protectors on each side (front and back) of the punches. Incredibly old, yellowed tape repairs one hole punch on the back of the sheet. There is minor edge wear and a printing artifact on Raider's haunch; otherwise, this vintage promo sheet is in very good shape for being some 70 years old.

SHIPPING & HANDLING: Paper items are wrapped with care in acid-free sleeves, placed between sheets of cardboard and shipped in secure packaging within two business days of purchase.

VINTAGE: All vintage and antique items have unique histories and are offered for sale in exactly the condition they were found. They are sold “AS IS.”
