Original MGM One Sheet Poster (27x41). Folded. Fine Plus Condition.
Original MGM One Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Richard Brooks drama, THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV (1958) starring Yul Brynner, Maria Schell, Claire Bloom, and Lee J. Cobb. It was a major task to adapt such a complicated and lengthy novel by Dostoyevsky to film. Though most of the high notes of the book plot are covered, parts of the plot had to be pared down to make a workable film. The performances are all quite good, especially Cobb who plays the father and steals every scene he is in. Indeed, he received the lone Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. There is excellent direction by Brooks who sustains the emotional intensity of the novel but keeps everything on an intimate (as opposed to epic) scale. This original one sheet poster is folded and in fine plus condition, with minor fold separations and some masking tape on left border and back of poster. We have used repair tissue on the separation to keep the poster from further distress. A great Brynner image.
