U.S. Half Sheet Poster (22x28) Folded Very Good Condition

Original U.S. Half Sheet poster for the British film OUR VIRGIN ISLAND (1958). The film was distributed in the United States in 1960, and it is for this distribution that we have the American poster. The film starred none other than John Cassavettes, Sidney Poitier and Virginia Maskell. The poster casually omits the word "Our" in the title, indicating that there was an element of sexploitation in the distribution of the film in the U.S. Poitier is mentioned as an Academy Award nominee, several years before he would win the award for his role in LILIES OF THE FIELD. The story is actually rather innocuous. A couple moves to the (British) Virgin Islands, where they live an uncomplicated life, free of the angst of the 20th Century. This poster was used in a theater, and it shows some signs of general wear. An uncommon poster to be sure. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster dates from the original U.S. release of this movie. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
