Original Titanus Italian Four Foglio (79x55) Folded Very Fine Condition

Original Titanus Italian Four Foglio poster (79x55) for the epic film THE LEOPARD (1963) starring Burt Lancaster, Claudia Cardinale, Alain Delon, and Ida Galli. This lavish film was directed by Luchino Visconti. It is based on a very famous Italian historical novel by Giuseppe Tomasi De Lampedusa. The novel was an international best seller and it is curious that Fox, in the midst of the huge expense of CLEOPATRA was interested in distributing the film in the United States. It was Fox that insisted on Burt Lancaster for the leading role, with hopes of attracting a larger U.S. audience. The movie has been oddly tagged the "Gone With the Wind" of Italy due to its large historic sweep. The film was shot in a horizontal 35mm format for release in a 70mm version (Super Technirama 70). This poster is the original Italian 79x55 from the first release. It is clear to us from surveying the posters worldwide on this very famous Italian film that this is the best poster we know of for THE LEOPARD. Vintage, authentic, original. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
