Warner Brothers Original French 18x29 Folded Very Fine Condition

Original Warner Brothers French 18x29 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. In the middle of all this, and the cause of it, was the rather beautiful Rossana Podesta. 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. The film was rather a magnificent flop for Warners, but over the years it has garnered a revered place as a guilty pleasure. Wise stages the battles with the help of some marvelous second unit directors with skill, and the "forbidden" love between Paris and Helen ignited the screen. This poster is folded, with some very minor distresses and minor fold separation. Nevertheless, this poster has not been seen at auction in the U.S.A. Absolutely authentic. MovieArt will sell NO reproductions. Art by Andre Bertrand.
