Original Mexican 27x36 Poster Linen-Backed Very Good Plus to Fine Condition Restored Beautifully
Charming poster of Mexican comic Cantinflas, a,k.a. Mario Fortino Alfonso Moreno Reyes, from a 1940 film AHI ESTA DETALLE. Cantinflas was well-known to Spanish-speaking audiences both in the United States and internationally. But he became an well-known overnight star in America when he appeared as Passepartout, David Niven's irrepressible sidekick in the 1955 event-film AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS. Chaplin praised him as one of the great comics and he was beloved for his peasant character, prone to mischief and with a loving heart. Many of the best Mexican posters from his film present a caricature of the character and it is no different here. The native condition of this poster was very good. It had a small hole which was repaired in the restoration. The poster has been linen-backed and presents beautifully. It's a very nice image of this great comic. Cantinflas died in 1993, but his career spanned decades and countries. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is an authentic, vintage poster for this film. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
