Product Description

MGM Original U.S. Insert Card Poster (14x36) Paper Backed Fine Plus Condition

Original MGM Insert Card for the 1925 production of BEN-HUR, directed by Fred Niblo, and starring Ramon Novarro, Francis X. Bushman, May McAvoy, Betty Bronson, Claire McDowell, Kathleen Key, John Barrymore, Lionel Barrymore. The film was based on a famous novel by General Lew Wallace and is the story of two boyhood friends who become bitter enemies. It is also a story of Christian encounter, love and redemption. The plot is well-known to almost everyone because of MGM's lavish remake of the film in 1959. But it is interesting to see just how much the 1959 film followed the template of the 1925 version. Both films were enormous productions for their time. Posters for the 1925 version are rare, and we know of only one instance where the U.S. insert card has appeared at auction. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. insert for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
