Paramount Pictures Original One Sheet Poster 27x41 Folded Good Condition

Here is your baby-boomer's ROMEO AND JULIET, released in that halcyon year 1968. The Adonis-like Leonard Whiting and the gamine Olivia Hussey are the star-crossed lovers in Franco Zeffirelli's sumptuous film of the Shakespeare play. The film was wildly popular and probably responsible for bringing a host of sixties kids to The Bard's playhouse. A bit on the titillating side to as you got a peek at male bum for one of the very first times. The lovely, enduring score by Nino Rota didn't hurt one bit either. Zeffirelli went on to film more Shakespeare when he did The Burtons in TAMING OF THE SHREW. This poster was theater used, has some water stains, should be linen backed, probably. Paper integrity is strong, but the poster shows its age. Still, this one sheet is actually somewhat hard to acquire and is priced well. Worth restoring. MovieArt Austin guarantees this poster to be the original authentic one-sheet for this movie. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
