MGM / CINERAMA Original U.S. Three Sheet Poster (41x81) Folded Very Fine Condition

Original MGM / CINERAMA Three Sheet Poster (41x81) for the John Frankenheimer raceing drama, GRAND PRIX (1966) starring James Garner, Eva Marie Saint, and Yves Montand. Also appearing were international stars like Adolfo Celi, Geraldine Page and Toshiro Mifune. This film has a soap opera plot pasted on some really great racing sequences with exceptional cinematography and a great musical score. The real stars of the film are the beautiful Formula 1 "cigar" cars of the 60s. The film also chronicles how the racing world was changing from the gentlemen's league of the 50s to the overtly commercial and brutally competitive environment that F1 racing was to become. The film was distributed as a roadshow picture on the CINERAMA circuit. The huge deep-curved screens presented a great canvas for the racing sequences so exquisitely photographed by Lionel Lindon. This three sheet is a roadshow CINERAMA three sheet, much scarcer than posters intended for the 35mm distribution. Condition overall is very fine, with one small fold separation at a fold intersection. Colors are vivid. Paper quality is excellent. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. poster for this film. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
