20th Century Fox Original U.S. Three-Sheet Poster (41x81) Folded In three panels

20th Century Fox Original Three Sheet Poster for the Anatole Litvak directed drama THE SNAKE PIT (1948) starring Olivia DeHavilland, Mark Stevens, Leo Genn, Helen Craig and Ray Teal. THE SNAKE PIT offers one of the great roles of DeHavilland, for which, she was properly awarded an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role. DeHavilland plays a housewife who suffers from mental illness. She is committed to an institution where she receives treatment from a concerned and compassionate doctor. The film is about her journey from breakdown to release. This was in 1948, and the subject was not exactly taboo, but it was cloistered. The picture treats the subject with intelligence and feeling. This is the style B three sheet. This poster was printed on three panels. Each one is joined to the other to present as one large poster (41x81). This three sheet is a nice example of Fox's stone lithography. We believe that this poster would look great linen-backed. Ask us about poster restoration services.
