Warner Brothers Original U.S. Three Sheet Poster (41x81) Theater Used Very Good Condition

Warner Brothers Original U.S Three Sheet Poster for the Elia Kazan directed film A FACE IN THE CROWD (1957). The film starred Andy Griffith, Patricia Neal, Anthony Franciosa, Howard Smith and Walter Matthau. It's hard to think of a more prescient and important American movie from the decade of the 1950s than Kazan's A FACE IN THE CROWD. Andy Griffith plays an good ol' country boy with a guitar named Lonesome Roads. Get it? We first encounter him in jail. He meets up with some agents and hucksters in the broadcasting business. He sings some of his folksy country songs and soon lands a spot on local TV, with the help of a shrewd businesswoman played by Neal. As time goes by, he offers up some populist banter on TV and soon has an active following. When these fans become a legion of followers, things turn dicey. Sound familiar? If it does, it's because screenwriter Budd Schulberg knew a thing or two about celebrity and how it all works. Andy Griffith was able to make the character believable in a way that perhaps no other actor of the period could have, with his folksy delivery laced with a good deal of knowingness. Patricia Neal just smolders in the role as she plots the next conquest for Lonesome Roads. The U.S. three sheet for this title has not been seen much and this example, although it was used in a theater seventy years ago, we have graded in very good condition. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. three sheet poster for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions. This poster would linen-back beautifully.
