Warner Brothers Original Italian 39x55 Poster Folded Good Condition

Original Warner Brothers Italian 39x55 poster for the Robert Wise directed film HELEN OF TROY (1956) starring Rossana Podesta, Jacques Sernas, Niall MacGinnis, and Sir Cedric Hardwicke. The Warner Brothers version 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 impressively with the help of some marvelous second unit directors including Yakima Canutt and Sergio Leone. The "forbidden" love between Paris and Helen ignited the screen. Here is the original Italian 39x55 poster with very good art by Alfredo Capitani. This poster is folded, and although the paper integrity is generally good, this is a theater-used poster. There are some fold separations which have been mended with archival tissue. MovieArt Original film posters guarantees that this Italian poster from the first release of the film is absolutely authentic. MovieArt will sell no reproductions.
