Original Warner Brothers One Sheet Poster (27x41) for the Jose Quintero film of Tennessee Williams' THE ROMAN SPRING OF MRS. STONE (1961) starring Vivien Leigh, Warren Beatty, Coral Browne, Jill St. John, and Lotte Lenya. After her husband's fatal heart attack on the plane ride to Italy, Mrs. Stone (Leigh) leases a magnificent apartment in Rome and is introduced to a handsome young man (Beatty) by the Contessa (Lenya), a madam living off the earnings of her "boys." Based on a novel by Tennessee Williams, it hammers home the realization that old age is the ultimate punishment for the vain and selfish. In many ways, Leigh is the character she is playing, with her fading fame and beauty amplifying the actual pain of going through her divorce from Laurence Olivier during the shooting of the film. Indeed, Leigh underwent a number of electro-shock treatments right after finishing the movie. But nevertheless she is fabulous as Karen Stone, never missing a beat in etching a portrayal of the lonely American matron. Lotte Lenya received both an Academy Award and Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her memorable portrayal of the Contessa. This original one sheet poster is folded and in very fine plus condition. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees this poster to be authentic, vintage, original
