    Howard Hughes initially released The Outlaw independently in 1943, but was forced to withdraw it by the censors soon after. It was not until 1946 that it had a limited release through R.K.O., which is when this poster dates from, and then went on to a general release through United Artists in 1950 (see following lot).
