Original RKO Radio Pictures Italian 39x55 Two Foglio Poster Linen Backed Fine Plus Condition

RKO Radio Pictures Original Italian two-foglio poster (39x55) for the Orson Welles masterpiece THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS (1942) starring Joseph Cotten, Anne Baxter, Dolores Costello, Agnes Moorehead, Tim Holt, Ray Collins, Erskine Sanford and Richard Bennett. Only slightly less revered than CITIZEN KANE (1941), the film concerns a distinguished midwestern family in the early part of the last century and the changes they encounter as the country changes. This was the second film that Orson Welles produced and directed himself. Welles tells the story of this family and it's human drama adroitly. Never boring. One of the great tragic stories in the history of the American cinema is that RKO took the film away from Welles and discarded over an hour of footage, thus bowdlerizing what would certainly have been an even more astounding film. We know that because Welles left detailed notes about the production of the film. Nevertheless, even cut as it was, the film remains of the very best best American films. The poster is signed "ello". We believe that this is a shortened version of the artist Averado Ciriello's signature. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is the authentic Italian 2 foglio for this film. Vintage, authentic, original. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
