Born to Be Wild

Hollywood: Republic Pictures, 1938. Collection of five vintage studio still photographs from the 1938 film. Featuring images of Ralph Byrd, Doris Weston, Ward Bond, and others. Written for the screen by Nathanael West.

Ralph Byrd and Ward Bond play two rough and tumble truckers who agree to take a dangerous load of dynamite to a city in danger of being flooded when a nearby dam breaks. Byrd, best known for his role in Republic's "Dick Tracy" series, was here being groomed to play better roles for the company. Joe Kane's first non-Western feature film.

Set in California.

10 x 8 inches. Very Good plus, with pinhole tears and occasional light foxing to the borders.
