Original 20th Century-Fox Roadshow Todd-AO Title Lobby Card (11x14). Very Good Condition.

Original 20th Century-Fox Roadshow Todd-AO Title Lobby Card (11x14) for the Joseph Mankiewicz historical super-epic, CLEOPATRA (1963) starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and Rex Harrison. Originally this film was supposed to be two three-hour moviesÑthe first dealing with Caesar and Cleopatra and the second with Antony and Cleopatra. But Fox, reeling the exorbitant cost overruns associated with this debacle, decided to release one four hour movie instead. Elizabeth TaylorÕs 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. A couple of dog-eared creases determine this card's grading of very good instead of fine. However, paperbacking this card would be a great idea if you want a small, yet complete image of the Howard Terpning Art for the film. In terms of lobby cards, only the 70mm roadshow release material for CLEOPATRA has this famous art. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this title card is the original, vintage, roadshow 70mm title card for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
