20th Century Fox Original U.S. Half Sheet Poster (22x28) Rolled Average Used Condition

Original 20th Century-Fox Half-Sheet Poster (22x28) for the Otto Preminger musical, CARMEN JONES (1954) starring Harry Belafonte and Dorothy Dandridge. This unique film is a contemporary version of the Bizet opera with new lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and an African-American cast. Even though Belafonte and Dandridge were both accomplished singers, their singing voices were dubbed in the film by LeVern Hutcherson and a young Marilyn Horne. While Harry Belafonte was a soon-to-be famous black actor in the early 1950s, the impressive performance by Dandridge in the title role is the most memorable feature of the film. This original half sheet poster was never folded, but it was used in a theater and it shows signs of its age and general wear. We have graded it in good -- average used -- condition. It's a bit smudgy and there are border wear issues. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. half sheet for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
