Original 20th Century-Fox Roadshow TODD-AO Six Sheet Poster (81x81). Art by Howard Terpning. Very Fine Plus Condition.

Original 20th Century-Fox Roadshow SIx Sheet Poster (81x81) for the Joseph L. Mankiewicz historical epic, CLEOPATRA (1963) starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and Rex Harrison. Originally this film was supposed to be two three-hour movies - the first dealing with Caesar and Cleopatra and the second with Antony and Cleopatra. But Fox, reeling from the exorbitant cost overruns associated with this budgetary debacle, decided to release one four hour movie instead. Elizabeth Taylor's original contract stipulated that she was to be paid $1 million. But after a lengthy $50 million lawsuit brought by the studio against Burton and Taylor and then a countersuit by Taylor, the studio finally settled with the actress for $7 million. The six sheet and the 24 sheet are arguably the best U.S. posters on this title. The Howard Terpning art was used worldwide for the CLEOPATRA advertising campaign. This original Todd-AO Roadshow six sheet poster is in very fine plus condition.
