Original Italian 39x55 Folded Very Fine condition

Original Columbia Pictures Italian 2 foglio poster (39x55) for the Stanley Kramer interracial romance, GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER (1967) starring Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, Sidney Poitier, and Katharine Houghton. Tracy and Hepburn play a liberal San Francisco older couple whose attitudes are challenged when their daughter brings home a black fiance, played by the great Sidney Poitier. Racial prejudice was common in 1967; indeed, the first interracial kiss on TV did not occur until 1969 (on Star Trek!). People needed to hear the message that color and race should not prevent two people who love each other from getting married. The film received 10 Oscar nominations, including Best Actor (Tracy in his last film role), Best Director, and Best Picture. The film received the Oscar for Best Screenplay and Best Actress for the second time to Katharine Hepburn. Italian posters in this format have not been particularly common. This poster was used in an Italian cinema, but has survived the years in very nice condition. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantee that this poster is authentic.
