Original MGM One Sheet Poster (27x41) for John Huston's film of Tennessee Williams' sultry drama THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA (1964). Richard Burton plays a defrocked Episcopal priest whose post-clerical vocation is directing a busload of middle aged women on a tour of Mexico. All are middle aged except for one, the luscious Sue Lyon, straight from her title role as LOLITA in the Stanley Kubrick film. Burton has his demons to keep at bay - alcohol, despair and his lust for Lyon. Somehow this group ends up in a rundown Mexican beach-side hotel run by the ravishing if ripe Ava Gardner. Gardner has two hot beachboys to keep her amused, so it's something deeper than her own considerable passion and loneliness that attracts her to Burton. Add to this mix a kind and elegant English spinster, fabulously portrayed by the great Deborah Kerr, and her ancient father, who come to stay at the hotel and you have another great Tennessee Williams drama, one of the loveliest of his plays. Marvelously brought to the screen by John Huston, the film fairly bristles. Perhaps the offscreen love affair of Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, who were together in Mexico at the time of shooting has famously made the film part of sixties movie lore. Very good condition. Slightly soiled on reverse, some pinholes, one fold is irregular, resulting in an extra crease. Would linen back nicely.
