RKO Pictures Original Six Sheet Poster (81x81) Linen Backed. Very Fine Condition

RKO Original Six Sheet Poster (81x81) for the film JET PILOT (1957) directed by Josef VonSternberg and starring John Wayne, Janet Leigh, Jay C. Flippen, Paul Fix, Hans Conried, Roland Winters, Kenneth Tobey and Richard Rober. The movie is a cold-war soap opera produced by the legendary Howard Hughes. It first began filming in 1953, but was not released until four years later due to incessant tinkering with the movie by Hughes. Janet Leigh is a Soviet Pilot who lands her jet aircraft on an American carrier with the idea of defecting. Wayne is assigned to involve himself with her, which he does. From there it is more or less an espionage story. No spoilers here, but it is one of the more improbably movies we have seen. The film was at first directed by VonSternberg, the director of record, but he only lasted a few months. Hughes fiddled and fiddled with the movie. When it was finally released, RKO had gone out of business and the first release of the movie was distributed by Universal. This six sheet is a rare example of the large format poster. MovieArt Austin guarantees this six sheet to be an authentic six sheet for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions. Condition is very fine.
