Product Description

Original Polish One Sheet Poster (24.5x36.5). 1955Re-Release. Linen-Backed. Near Mint.

Original Polish 1955 Re-Release One Sheet Poster (24.5x36.5) for the Alexander Korda historical classic, THE PRIVATE LIFE OF HENRY VIII (1933) starring Charles Laughton and as Henry's last five wives: Merle Oberon, Wendy Barrie, Elsa Lanchester, Binnie Barnes, and Everley Gregg. This early talkie begins with the execution of his second wife, Anne Boleyn, who was unable to provide the king a male heir. Charles Laughton, only 34-years-old at the time, gives one of the best performances of his life - lively, funny, energetic, and yet oftentimes lonely and hurt. He deservedly received the Academy Award for Best Actor and the film was nominated for Best Picture. Hungarian-born Korda made many wonderful films about European history and culture in which Laughton played three of his best characters - Henry VIII, artist Rembrandt, and Roman Emperor Claudius. Laughton's real life wife, Elsa Lanchester, gives a wonderful performance as the daffy Anne of Cleves, and the comic chemistry between the two is quite funny and delightful. This original Polish poster was produced when the film was released in Poland in 1955 and is linen-backed and in near mint condition.
