United Artists Original One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Linen Backed Very Fine Condition

Original United Artists One Sheet Poster for the John Huston romance-adventure classic, THE AFRICAN QUEEN (1951), a movie with truly brilliant performances by Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart. This is the story of grumpy, gin-swilling roustabout Charles Allnut (Bogart), who is running a little tramp steamer with supplies to small East African villages at the onset of World War I. When German troops invade and destroy Hepburn's missionary village, Allnut offers to take her on his boat, The African Queen, back to civilization, but not before carrying out a rather daring plan to blow up a German warship. Based on novel by C.S. Forester, the outstanding adaptation by James Agee and Huston was packed with unforgettable exchanges by Hepburn and Bogart and infused throughout by Huston with hilarious tongue-and cheek satire. One of the most popular movies of 1951, it was Oscar - nominated for Best Director for Huston, Best Screenplay for Agee and Huston, Best Actress for Hepburn, and Best Actor for Humphrey Bogart (which he won). This original one-sheet is linen-backed and is in very fine condition indeed. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S; one-sheet for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
