BIG IRON

The 3 Mesquiteers / Western Film Posters

OK, OK … I’ve bin a bit hard on them The 3 Mesquiteers. So’s I better show ’em some Love.
After all, they do hold an rightful place in Western Film history and John Wayne’s Filmography.
And I gotta say they did have some pretty nice Western Poster Art.
Let’s take a ride:

The 3 Mesquiteers were about 50 B Movie Serials between 1936 and 1943.
There were several personnel changes in the Series over the years.
John Wayne appeared in 8 starting 1938.

The 3 Mesquiteers posters / 1936 to 1937

Beautiful. A lot of early Westerns employed Artwork instead of photography.
And the results were spectacular.

3 Mesquiteers … A little History:

Max Terhune (as Lullaby Joslin), Robert Livingston (as Stony Brooke) and Ray Corrigan (asTucson Smith)

Max Terhune played Lullaby Joslin in 21 films.

Bob Livingston played Stony Brooke in 29 films,

Ray Corrigan played Tucson Smith in 24 films,

John Wayne dropped by in 1938 and played Stony Brooke in 8 films.

You can spot Legendary Stuntman Yakima Canutt (top left with the pistol).
Yak performed many stunts with the Mesquiteers
and a bit of Acting as well – often unbilled. 

Ghost Town Gold slides in here somewhere,
but I couldn’t find a decent poster.

Really nice stuff.
