United Artists Original One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Folded Fine Plus Condition

Original United Artists One-Sheet Poster for the Don Siegel film THE GUN RUNNERS (1958) starring Audie Murphy, Eddie Albert, Richard Jaeckel, Everett Sloane and John Qualen. The movie was based on the novel TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT by Ernest Hemingway. This was the third time that the novel had been made into a film, and while it doesn't have the classic aura of the Bogart / Bacall version, it is a bit grittier. Audie Murphy was a World War II hero and a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor. After the war he found a career waiting in Hollywood. He made a few good films, and a lot of serviceable westerns for Universal. This version has Eddie Albert as a really vicious villain. We see Murphy in a style of poster characteristic of United Artists of the period. Almost the look of an etching. The poster is graded in fine plus condition, but there is a small piece missing from the border area only upper left. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. one-sheet for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
