United Artists Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Folded Fine Plus to Very Fine Condition
United Artists Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41), folded, for the Michael Winner spy drama SCORPIO (1973). The film stars Burt Lancaster as a CIA Agent who's training a young recruit played by Alain Delon. The Agency tells the young recruit to kill his mentor and that's when things get hairy. Here an interesting fact about the movie culled from Wikipedia. "Despite a script which showed the CIA assassinating people and involved with various nefarious plots, Winner was given permission to shoot in the CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Scenes at Cross's home were actually filmed at then CIA Director Richard Helm's home in NW Washington D.C. Arnold Picker, Chairman of United Artists, was surprised that the CIA would allow such a thing and insisted that Winner show them a copy of the script before shooting began. He did so and approval was granted, making Scorpio the only movie ever shot on location at their Headquarters." The poster has vivid color, and very fine distresses at the fold intersections. We have graded the poster as fine plus to very fine. A nice example of the poster. Art by Robert McGinnis. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
