United Artists Original British Quad Poster (30x40) Folded Very Fine Condition

Original United Artists British Quad Poster (30x40) for the John Wayne western epic, THE ALAMO (1960) starring Wayne, Richard Widmark, Laurence Harvey, and Frankie Avalon. Filmmakers have attempted the story of the Texas Freedom Fortress several times, but this 1960 movie filmed in the Todd-AO process is the most famous and arguably the most enjoyable. Certainly most Texans think so. John Wayne directed himself and a good cast in the myth-enhancing version of the Texan settlers' battle against Mexican authority. An entire community was built in Bracketville, Texas to stand in for early San Antonio and the most of the film was made in Texas. With Richard Widmark as James Bowie and Laurence Harvey as a dandified Colonel William Barrett Travis, the film also pays some homage to the Hispanic Texas settlers who figured in the epic battle. The film rested almost entirely on Wayne's shoulders, but his old mentor John Ford also showed up on the set and was given some second-unit work. One of the most enduring things about the film is a lovely melodic score by Dimitri Tiomkin. This colorful British poster, with artwork by the great Reynold Brown, is folded and in very fine shape. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
