#CH123  - Wallet with Movie Star Pictures From the 1950s
Vintage standard size wallet. Vinyl and cloth. They used to put inserts in old wallets with pictures of famous people so you could picture yourself there. These all have famous movie stars from the mid 1950s in them. Several different types. The one I am looking at pictures Audrey Hepburn and Richard Egan. Their heyday was around 1954 when they both won Golden Globes so they are likely from around then. There are several different. All have famous stars. Chris and I found these on our trip to Boston in an old dimestore distributorship. They are early vinyl.

#CH326-29 - Gene Autry Mule Train Movie Poster/Broadside
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Vintage 13" tall paper movie poster/broadside from the 1950 movie "Mule Train" starring Gene Autry and "Champion World's Wonder Horse". This was a popular movie back in the day. Please click the picture to see a more detailed image. Back in the day, when a new movie was going to play at the local theatre, there would be a guy who would run around town tacking these things on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived. Some will have small edge tears or roughness, but this is true of all paper movie broadsides, and they can easily be trimmed for framing. Although, a few small imperfections kind of adds to the look with these. Colors vary. We got them from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist. He found them in the storage area of an old theatre up in Northeast Ohio.
$7.50
