Original 2-Panel Subway Advance United States Premiere Poster (45x60). Linen-backed. Very good.

Original 2-Panel Subway Advance Poster (45x60) for the Carol Reed musical, OLIVER! starring Ron Moody, Jack Wild, Shani Wallace, Oliver Reed, and Mark Lester. The legendary story by Charles Dickens was admirably adapted as a musical for the London stage by Lionel Bart. It then became an equally big hit on Broadway and was finally adapted for film in 1968. Nominated for 11 Academy Awards, the film won Best Picture and Best Director for Reed. In addition, Onna White won a special honorary award for her outstanding choreography. The sequence for "Consider Yourself" is one of the greatest dance sequences in film history. This pre-Academy Award 2-panel advance poster was for the U.S. Premiere of the film on December 10, 1968. Any U.S. material that does not have the Oscar statuette on the poster - hence "pre-Oscar" - is very scarce. This unusually rare poster is in very good condition and is linen-backed. This is one of the best posters for this film we have ever seen. We found this poster in very good condition and immediately had it restored expertly. It looks great. No missing image; some repairs to border insults. Linen backed.
