Original United Artists One Sheet Poster (27x41). Near mint condition.

Original United Artists One Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Richard Brooks drama, ELMER GANTRY (1960) starring Burt Lancaster, Jean Simmons, Arthur Kennedy, Dean Jagger, and Shirley Jones. Richard Brooks' screenplay was adapted from the highly controversial novel by Sinclair Lewis, and no studio initially wanted to finance the film. The story deals with Gantry (Lancaster)-- a fast-talking, hard drinking traveling salesman. He becomes fascinated with a charismatic female evangelist (Simmons) and teams up with her to "sell" religion to America in the 1920s. But Gantry's sordid past catches up with him in the form of a prostitute named Lulu (Jones). The film was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture. It won three Oscars: Best Actor to Lancaster, Best Supporting Actress to Jones, and Best Adapted Screenplay to Brooks. This original one sheet poster is in near mint condition.
