Warner Brothers Studio-Issued Gelatin Silver Print (8x10) Release of 1959 Very Fine Condition

Original Warner Brothers studio-issued gelatin silver print (8x10) 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 gelatin silver print dates from Warners' re-release of the film in 1959. Nice set shot of the Trojan Horse. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this photograph is an authentic, vintage print issued by Warners from this film. Production Code number is 388-125. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
