United Artists Original Half Sheet Poster (22x28). Unfolded. Fine Condition.

Original United Artists Half Sheet Poster (22x28) for the Otto Preminger epic biography, SAINT JOAN (1957) starring Richard Widmark, Richard Todd, Anton Walbrook, and Jean Seberg. Adapted for screen by Graham Greene and based on the play by George Bernard Shaw, this film is the story of Saint Joan of Arc, a peasant girl born in eastern France, who led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War (1335-1453) and was indirectly responsible for the coronation of Charles VII. Joan (Seberg in her film debut) is presented as a divinely inspired innocent while all the all-male ensemble that surround her are scheming, Machiavellian opportunists who treat religion as a tool to be used and manipulated for their own ends. Joan is portrayed as both saint and madwoman, while Widmark portrays the future king of France in a frenzied and comic caricature. With stunning art by legendary Saul Bass, this original half sheet poster is unfolded. Slight foxing in the border area presents a slight flaw, but this half sheet is a beautiful example.
