Original 20th Century-Fox One-Sheet Poster (27x41). Linen-Backed. Very Fine.

Original 20th Century-Fox One-Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Henry Hathaway film noir thriller, NIAGARA (1953) starring Marilyn Monroe, Joseph Cotton, and Jean Peters. This beautiful one sheet, really remarkably preservered on linen, displays a dazzling image of the greatest sex goddess-star the world has ever known - Marilyn Monroe. This suspenseful story of love, betrayal, and murder is set against the magnificent backdrop of Niagara Falls. While Monroe is sexy and seductive garbed in a most revealing wardrobe, she demonstrates convincingly that she can also play serious roles. Indeed, this is the only movie in which her character meets a fatal end. Joseph Cotten gives a typically impressive performance as the abusive and unstable husband, and Jean Peters, who took the role originally meant for Anne Baxter, delivers an excellent performance as a totally unsuspecting honeymooner who inadvertently gets caught up in Monroe/Cotten intrigue. This original one sheet poster is especially noteworthy because the blue inks in the image are very well preserved. This poster has a tendency to fade to green somewhat. Or it is possible that certain copies of the poster that were printed do not have the full complement of blues. Here is a great example. There were two corners (small areas) that were missing in the border area only and these have been skillfully restored. Some slight touch up at the fold lines. But a spectacular copy overall. Therefore we have graded this as very fine despite a minor paper repair. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is authentic.
