Original British One Sheet Poster (27x41). Stone Lithograph. Linen-Backed. Fine Condition.
Original British One Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Laurence Olivier Shakespearean masterpiece, RICHARD III (1955). Besides Olivier directing and playing the title role, he is joined by four other knighted British thespiansÑCedric Hardwicke, Ralph Richardson, John Gielgud, and Stanley Baker. Also the beautiful and talented Claire Bloom plays The Lady Anne. This is probably the finest example of a Machiavellian monarch on film. Richard was capable of using deception, manipulation, and outright murder to achieve his goals. Laurence Olivier was the greatest Shakespearean actor of his time, and this role was certainly one of his best. This original British stone lithograph one sheet poster is linen-backed and in fine condition with some touch-up to the fold lines and restoration to the border area.
