El Fantasma Del Camino Mexican Movie Poster 1930s AP530

A wonderful poster for the Mexican release of an American movie serial. Fabulously hallucinatory.

The Phantom of the West is a 1931 American Pre-Code Mascot western movie serial and was the second all-talking serial they produced.

Tom Tyler stars as Jim Lester, trying to prove that Francisco Cortez (Frank Lanning) is innocent of killing his own father. The real villain is the mysterious Phantom and his League of the Lawless. Francisco Cortez escapes prison after serving fifteen years for the murder of Jim Lester’s father and proclaims his innocence and lists seven men who may be the real killer, who uses the name “The Phantom”.
