Product Description

Roadshow Magazine Advertising Featuring Roadshow Art (13x21) Linen Backed Signed by Kirk Douglas

Magazine Advertising for the roadshow release, featuring art with Reynold Brown and Saul Bass elements. This adveritisement is for the Stanley Kubrick Roman epic, SPARTACUS (1960) starring Kirk Douglas, Laurence Olivier, Jean Simmons, Charles Laughton, and Peter Ustinov. Stanley Kubrick replaced original director Anthony Mann, but it was really Kirk Douglas as Executive Producer who made many of the decisions. The film is a marvelous retelling of the revolt in 73 B.C. at a gladiatorial school, which mushrooms into a crisis for the Roman Empire. Opposing political factions by Olivier and Laughton try to use the revolt to further their political ends. Besides outstanding performances from the entire cast and expert direction by Kubrick, the film has beautiful cinematography by Russell Metty and a brilliant score by Alex North. The film was nominated for six Academy Awards and won five Oscars, including Best Supporting Actor to Ustinov and Best Cinematography to Metty. This adveritisement was excised from a magazine from the period, (probably LOOK magazine) and has been carefully mounted on linen. The piece has been signed by KIRK DOUGLAS. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this is an authentic, vintage advertisement from SPARTACUS. MovieArt does not sell reproductions. We stress, regarding this piece, that this item is not a movie poster as such, but rather a magazine ad signed by the films star and exescutive producer. Spectacular!
