Lobby card advertises the 1935 Tim McCoy vehicle, "The Man from Guntown," from Nat Ross Produc­tions/Puri­tan Pictures. McCoy is in the middle. Filmed at the Andy Jauregui movie ranch in Placerita Canyon. The motion picture still exists.

McCoy (1891-1978) rose to stardom as a Western film hero in the 1920s. He retired from the movies in 1935 to join the circus, only to return to the screen in 1940 when he was paired with Buck Jones and Raymond Hatton in a series of buddy pictures produced by Monogram in Placerita Canyon.

McCoy was honored posthumously at Santa Clarita's Veterans Historical Plaza in Newhall. He served in the U.S. Army during World War I and rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel but did not see overseas action at that time. He more than made up for it two and a half decades later following Buck Jones' untimely death in 1942. He reenlisted, made full colonel, and won several decorations while serving with the Army Air Corps in Europe.

"The Man from Guntown" is directed by Ford Beebe and also stars Billie Seward, Wheeler Oakman, Robert McKenzie, Rex Lease, Jack Rube Clifford, Jack Rockwell, George Chesebro, Eva McKenzie and Horace B. Carpenter. Uncredited cast includes Chuck Baldra, Hank Bell, Ralph Bucko, Roy Bucko, Bob Card, Jess Cavin, Tommy Coats, Jim Corey, Bert Dillard, Jack Evans, Oscar Gahan, William Gillis, Pat Harmon, John Ince, Ray Jones, Jack Kirk, Johnny Luther, Ella McKenzie, Buck Morgan, Charles Murphy, Bill Patton, George C. Pearce, Bud Pope, Archie Ricks, Dick Rush, Tom Smith and Jack Tornek.

The back of this 11x14-inch lobby card is stamped, "John E. Allen Inc. Collection / 116 North Ave. / Park Ridge, N.J. 07656." John E. Allen was a film historian and preservationist who was in the business of providing old stock footage to film and television production companies. He died in January 1976 at age 65.
