United Artists 24 sheet poster 9x20 feet Very Fine

In the decade of the 1950s historical and biblical epics were prestigeous products for Hollywood. 20th Century Fox had released THE EGYPTIAN (1954). Paramount had triumphed with THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (1956). Warners had filmed LAND OF THE PHAROAHS (1955) and HELEN OF TROY (1956). MGM had lavished production values on QUO VADIS (1951) and later produced the greatest of all the biblical-era films, BEN-HUR (1959). United Artists had stayed out of this area for the most part, but tried with SOLOMON AND SHEBA (1959), directed by the great Hollywood veteran King Vidor. Yul Brynner was signed to play Solomon and the Italian bombshell known simply as Lollo - Gina Lollobridgida was signed to play The Queen of Sheba. Of course, they needed a villain and that part went to George Sanders. Fast and loose with the bible, but generous with costumes, sets and wide screen photography. Here is the original exterior billboard poster for the movie. This is an enormous poster, printed on 12 different panels, and measuring 9 by twenty feet. We have photographed the poster in three sections. Detailed information can of course be provided about the poster.
