Original MGM Six Sheet Poster (81x81). Linen-Backed. Very Fine Plus.

Original MGM Six Sheet Poster (81x81) for the iconic American family drama, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (1958) starring Paul Newman, Burl Ives, Jack Carson, Judith Anderson and, of course, Elizabeth Taylor in one of her greatest roles. Taylor plays the beautiful and sultry wife of the alcoholic and sexually ambivalent young football player Brick (Newman). Brick is the son of an autocratic Southern patriarch who is known in the play only as Big Daddy, played wonderfully by the great Burl Ives. Jack Carson, Judith Anderson and Madeleine Sherwood flesh out the cast, as they work through the stew of Tennessee Williams' tangle of desires and ambitions. One of the great American plays, whose influence on the American Theater cannot be overestimated, is transformed into a remarkable film by director Richard Brooks. Maggie the cat is shown on the poster where her appeal is most apparent - on the bed. The poster is backed on a thinner, European style linen and is in very fine plus condition. Note the presence of a censor stamp in the background area. This can be left on or removed. Rebacking is not necessary, but is certainly possible for an even better look. One of the great American six sheets and one of the nicest Elizabeth Taylor images. Classic.
