20th Century Fox Original Half Sheet Poster 22x28 Folded Very Good Condition

Original 20th Century Fox Half Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Mark Robson war biography, THE INN OF THE SIXTH HAPPINESS (1958) starring Ingrid Bergman, Curd Jurgens, and Robert Donat. Based on the novel "The Small Woman" by Alan Burgess, this film chronicles the life of Gladys Aylward, who always believing she should go to China does finally go there. The film is set in the late 1920s and early 1930s. As a Christian missionary, she slowly wins over the local population with her good works and saves one hundred motherless children when the Japanese invade China in 1931by marching them to a mission site safe in the interior. This film marked the return of Ingrid Bergman to American films after years of exile over her affair and marriage to Italian director Roberto Rosselini. The film received the sumptuous and smart CinemaScope treatment from 20th Century Fox, with a good score from Sir Malcolm Arnold. Arnold had written the classic score for David Lean's THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI and the Arnold touch lent quite a bit to THE INN OF THE SIXTH HAPPINESS. This original half sheet poster is folded and in very good condition, with some modest edge-wear and some fold separation in the border areas. Nevertheless, the half sheet is not as easy to find as the one-sheet, and the art is somewhat better we think.
