Belgian Original Poster (14x22). Very Good.

Original Warner Brothers Belgian poster (14x22) for the David Butler musical western, CALAMITY JANE (1953) starring Doris Day and Howard Keel. In the early 1950s Hollywood had to find a way to draw audiences who were staying at home and watching TV back to the theaters, and films like CALAMITY JANE were designed to do just that. It is the biography of Indian scout Calamity Jane (Day), a butch cowgirl who gets a feminine makeover and snares her shooting buddy Wild Bill Hickok (Keel). This film is certainly one of the most successful combinations of comedy, musical, and western. It has many catchy songs sung by one of the greatest singing talents of the time, Doris Day. It was nominated for three Academy Awards and won the Oscar for Best Original Song "Secret Love." This is one of two Belgian posters and is referred to as the "Blue" style. We believe that this poster is a re-release from the 1960s. Any help further identifying the exact date would be appreciated. Please email us. Calamity Jane is perhaps the most beloved of all Doris Day musical films by her legions of fans. This original Belgian poster is unfolded and in very good condition-- with some edge wear and edge damage as well as slight paper loss in the playdate area at the top of the poster.
