Allied Artists Original Italian 39x55 Poster Folded Very Good Plus Condition
Original Italian 38x55 poster (folded) for the Anthony Mann epic, EL CID (1961) starring Charlton Heston, Sophia Loren, Raf Vallone, and Genevieve Page. This is an epic film of the medieval Spanish hero, El Cid Rodrigo de Bivar (Heston) who ultimately drove the Moors out of Spain. Interlaced into this epic story is a star-crossed romance between Rodrigo and Jimena (Loren). The film was nominated for three Academy Awards; Best Costume Design, Best Original Score for Miklos Rozsa, and Best Original Song for Rozsa and Paul Francis Webster. This poster was used in an Italian cinema and we have graded the poster as very good plus. There are some signs of general wear and tear, but colors are vivid. We think this poster would look very nice linen-backed, but it can be displayed successfully as it is. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic Italian poster for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
