Everyone who has studied the film career of Lou Gehrig knows about his role in "Rawhide." Studio images from that film are not rare and appear on the market frequently. What most do not realize is that Gehrig made another film in which he had a smaller role titled, "Hawaiian Buckaroo." The offered image is one of only a handful of images from that rare film picturing Gehrig known to exist and it presents beautifully. Condition and quality are both outstanding and this is the first from the film we have ever seen, let alone offered for sale! NOTE: While this photographed is archived on Hollywood websites as being from "Hawaiian Buckaroo" and was used to promote the film, it is believed that Gehrig never actually appeared in the film and that this was actually a shot from "Rawhide."
