Here’s the Spanish poster for the Randolph Scott picture Abilene Town (1946). Reminds me of some of the terrific art done for Spaghetti Westerns a couple decades later. Now, check out the promotional piece below. The title translates to The Street Of Conflict.
This was on sale the other day somewhere out there on the World Wide Web. As cool as it is, a 60-year-old paper knife wasn’t worth the fistful of Euros they were asking. Even if Randolph Scott’s name is on it. So these scans will have to do.
Abilene Town is a good one. And if you go looking for it, be careful. It’s in the public domain, and there are some really ratty-looking DVDs of it out there. I’ve tried a few of them with some pretty dismal results.
