Narrow, rectangular-shaped poster promoting the re-release of the movie "Dodge City." The poster is printed in sepia tones. The film starred Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, and Ann Sheridan. Flynn plays a settler and sheriff who tries to clean up Dodge City with the help of the townspeople. The movie premier was held in Dodge City in April 1939. Warner Brothers chartered a Santa Fe train to carry two dozen celebrities from Hollywood to Kansas. Though the population of Dodge City was only 10,000, around 60,000 people attended the festivities. This poster is part of a large collection of Western film posters donated to the Kansas Museum of History in 2007. All of the posters represent films with a Kansas connection.
