Original Italian 28x40 Folded Good Condition Theater-Used Average Used Condition

Original Italian 28x40 poster, folded, for the George P. Breakston dramatic film THE SCARLET SPEAR (1954) starring a mostly Kenyan cast, but also starring the American actress Martha Hyer and British actor John Bentley. Here is a summary of the plot, composed for the website imdb. "Deep in the African jungle territory, Telec District Commissioner Jim Barneson, and his new bride Christine/Chris, try to persuade Morasi, newly-crowned chief of the Masai, to abandon the age-old ritual of proving himself worthy to rule by slaying a rival tribe member and thus earing a "scarlet spear." Jim follows Morasi into enemy territory, and is present and helps fight off the enemy tribe during Morasi's test. Morasi, badly wounded, makes his way back to his tribe, where he pledges no human life will be taken in the future... and dies. His young son takes his spear and strides resolutely into the jungle... to earn his "scarlet spear." This Italian poster is quite remarkable for it kinetic art by Simbari. This poster was used in an Italian cinema and the condition should be regarded as average used - some small holes, vivid color, border distresses. We feel that this poster would look spectacular, linen-backed. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this is an authentic Italian poster for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
