Original Italian 27x38 Poster Folded Very Good Plus to Fine Condition
Original 20th Century-Fox Italian one-sheet (27x38) for the Robert Wise / Rodgers and Hammerstein musical masterpiece, THE SOUND OF MUSIC (1965) starring Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Eleanor Parker, and Richard Haydn. Julie Andrews is believable and unforgettable as the nun who leaves an Austrian convent to become a governess of the family of a naval officer widower. Great songs and music, interesting characters, superb direction, and an inspired screenplay all combine to make this one of the American Cinema's best loved and just plain great musicals. And while some people complain that the tone is too sweet, certainly the final act with the introduction of the Nazis adds a new sense of fear and drama. The audience loves the fact that the Von Trapp family is able to outwit history's ultimate villains. Nominated for 10 Academy Awards including Best Actress for Andrews, the film won five Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director to Wise. This is the Italian one-sheet for the Todd-AO 70mm roadshow release of the film in Italy. This poster was used in an Italian cinema and is in generally very good condition. A small part of the upper left hand corner is missing, so please note this defect. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas does not sell reproductions. Original, authentic.
