Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Linen-Backed Fine Plus Condition

Original MGM One Sheet Poster (27x41), linen-backed and in fine plus condition, for the Vincente Minnelli musical fantasy, BRIGADOON (1954), starring Gene Kelly, Van Johnson, Cyd Charisse, and Elaine Stewart. This is the charming story of two Americans, Jeff (Johnson) and Tommy (Kelly), who, while on a hunting vacation in Scotland, discover a quaint and enchanted village called Brigadoon. This village only appears for one day every one hundred years. The original Broadway production opened at the Ziegfeld Theater on March 13, 1947 and ran for 581 performances. Kelly wanted to shoot the film on location in Scotland, but MGM said that would be too expensive; so, Minnelli had to create an 18th century Scottish village on a studio set. It's too bad that Gene Kelly did not get his wish --- this film might have pre-dated the location-shot THE SOUND OF MUSIC as the first film to take musicals outside in a big way. This poster was used in a theater and showed some signs of gentle wear. We have had the poster linen-backed, and it now presents very nicely.
