Original Italian 28x40 Movie Poster Linen-Backed

Original Titanus Italian One-Sheet Poster (28x40), linen-backed, for the legendary gangster film SCARFACE (1932) directed by Howard Hawks. The film stars Paul Muni, Boris Karloff, Ann Dvorak, Karen Morley, C. Henry Gordon, Eugenie Besserer, Edwin Maxwell, Douglas Walton and Osgood Perkins. Produced by Howard Hughes, independently, for his Caddo Films company, SCARFACE remains one of the best crime pictures ever made. The movie was deftly directed by the great Howard Hawks. Ruthlessly frank, explicit, dangerous and shocking, the film aroused the censors. Unable to get the movie distributed initially, Hughes at first "four-walled" the film, renting theaters outright and taking 100% of the revenue. However, United Artists was at last allowed to distribute the film with a few minor changes. One of those changes was to add a subtitle to the film and consquently the film's advertising, and the phrase "the shame of a nation" was chosen. This poster, which is one of the great Italian posters, was created in 1949 for the first Italian post-war distribution of the film. The art is by Renaldo Geleng MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is authentic.
