Warner Brothers Argentinean poster. (43x58) Double Panel. Fine Condition. Stone lithograph.

This is one of the best posters for this title. And the only poster that we know of for HELEN OF TROY that is stone lithograph. The Argentinean poster designers got this one just right, with great color, good art and emphasizing the then-new element of CinemaScope. A splendid big poster for the Robert Wise ancient Greek epic, HELEN OF TROY (1956) starring Rossana Podesta, Jacques Sernas, Niall MacGinnis, and Sir Cedric Hardwicke. The Warner Brothers version of the tale of Homer's Iliad spins the story so that the Trojans are the heroic peace loving people trapped in a war with the bellicose Greeks. Podesta was new to American films, and Warners had high hopes for her, but her English was so broken that they elected to have her voice - and the voice of Sernas - dubbed. Nevertheless, the legend of this film lives on, and the film has more staying power than the bloated TROY.
