Universal PIctures Original Roadshow One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Linen-Backed

Original 70mm Roadshow one-sheet poster (27x41), linen backed, 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. The roadshow one-sheet was only distributed to roadshow 70mm reserved seat engagement venues. This poster is linen backed and is in very fine condition. Elements of Saul Bass' work on the film exist in the roadshow poster, but the general design is by Reynold Brown. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is a vintage, authentic 70mm roadshow one-sheet for this movie. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
