Original Embassy Pictures Three Sheet Poster (41x81). Folded. Very Fine Condition.

Original Embassy Pictures Three Sheet Poster (41x81) for the Anthony Harvey historical drama, THE LION IN WINTER (1968) starring Peter O'Toole, Katharine Hepburn, Anthony Hopkins, John Castle, and Nigel Terry. Adapted by James Goldman from his witty and sublimely literate, 1966 Broadway play, this film is one of the crowning achievements in cinematic storytelling. The tale revolves around the aging King Henry II (O'Toole) who must choose the successor to his throne from among his three sons (Hopkins, Castle, and Terry), while bringing his estranged and dysfunctional clan together for the Christmas holidays. The film was nominated for seven Academy Awards and won three Oscars: Best Actress to Hepburn for her memorable portrayal of Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, Best Screenplay to Goldman, and Best Original Score to John Barry. The three sheet was obviously printed for the roadshow engagement of this film, an exhibition plan which was abandoned by the producers. It is folded and in very fine condition.
