Press photo. Film star Ken Maynard. Released 1938.

Although the photo is clearly date-stamped “Mar 18 1938” and “Mar 20 1938”, it may originally have been taken as early as 1933 while Maynard was working on The Trail Drive, according to a typed note attached to the back of the picture. American film star Ken Maynard, rodeo and circus rider, stuntman, actor and singing cowboy, appeared in around ninety westerns from the mid-1920s to the mid-1940s. See also H23.
