Original Walt Disney Productions Three Sheet Poster. Very Fine Plus.
Original Walt Disney Productions Three Sheet Poster (41x81) for the Clyde Geronimi animated fairy tale, SLEEPING BEAUTY (1959) starring the voices of Mary Costa, Bill Shirley, and Eleanor Audley. This feature was in active production from 1951 until the end of 1958 and was the last Disney animated feature to have cels inked by hand. The beautiful art direction is inspired by European medieval paintings and architecture, and the elaborate background paintings took between seven and ten days to paint. SLEEPING BEAUTY was perhaps the first animated feature released in 70mm, in large part to present the music in stereo. Though much of the soundtrack in based on the Tchaikovsky ballet, George Bruns received an Academy Award nomination for Best Musical Score for his original songs. The poster is folded and not linen backed and is very fine plus condition with some signs of use. Some pinholes indicate that the poster was once theater-used. Colors are vivid. Three sheets are published generally on two panels which are then joined together to make one poster. This poster therefore is comprised of two separate panels. MovieArt can recommend a conservation studio if linen-backing is desired. MovieArt Austin guarantees this poster to be authentic, vintage, original. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
