Orsay Films Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Folded Fine Plus Condition
Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) for the 1955 French film L'AMANT DE LADY CHATTERLEY, based on the banned in the U.S. novel by D.H. Lawrence. The novel was racy, no doubt, but literary, too. A big controversy developed in the U.S. over the book, and the censorship issues wound up in the Supreme Court. The wife of an aristocrat has a TORRID affair with her gamekeeper. There you have it. No doubt filmmakers were hot to get this steamy story on the screen, even if they ignored the tonier aspects of the Lawrence's tale. The film did not widely appear in the U.S. until about 1959. The novel has seen several adaptations for the screen. This one starred Daniel Darrieux, Leo Genn and Jacques Marin. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is the original U.S. one sheet for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
