OUTLAW, THE (1941) Original first-release lobby card


Vintage original 11 x 14″ (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Jane Russell, Jack Buetel, Walter Huston, Thomas Mitchell, Mimi Aguglia, dir: Howard Hughes, Howard Hawks;  Howard Hughes Productions / United Artists/RKO, first released through Twentieth Century Fox. Card is in immaculate, unused condition. About fine.

Finished in 1940 and prepared and approved for release in early 1941, this notorious film was shelved until 1943 as producer Howard Hughes refused to make further cuts demanded by the state censors. The film was not widely shown or released until 1946. Extremely rare, therefore, are any original 1941 Twentieth Century Fox poster materials. The film was barely screened and Jane Russell’s popularity was based mostly on images of her and her PR work done during World War II. In fact, she did not even make another film until 1946.

This lobby card includes the 1941 release date and the Twentieth Century Fox copyright information along the bottom border.
