United Artists Original U.S. Three Sheet Poster (41x81) Used Condition Fair to Good

United Artists Original U.S. Three Sheet Poster (41x81) for the Edgar Ulmer film THE STRANGE WOMAN (1946) starring Hedy Lamarr, George Sanders, Louis Hayward, Gene Lockhart, Edith Evanson and Ray Teal. The film was directed by Edgar Ulmer, one of the true eccentrics among American directors. Ulmer liked the weird, and he liked a bit of mayhem. He directed DETOUR in 1945. THE STRANGE WOMAN involves a heartless and manipulative young girl who grows into a heartless and manipulative woman. The story takes place in Bangor, Maine in 1824. We follow the character of Jenny Hager (Lamarr) and it is a truly weird journey. Some of the films mystery and dread is reflected on this poster, which is actually quite an odd, antique-looking and lovely stone lithograph. We see the beautiful Lamarr, a candle and a whip. The film was based on a novel of the same name (1941) by Ben Ames Williams. The movie was produced in part by Hedy Lamarr, an interesting and brilliant woman, one of the most beautiful actresses in the history of the cinema. The film made a modest profit, but so little was cared about the copyright of the movie that it drifted into the public domain. Three sheets are large-format posters that are comprised of two separate sheets which are joined together to display as one poster. One sheet posters have been offered at auction, but in our memory we have not seen a large U.S. poster for the title. This poster was used in a theater and has survived in fair to good condition. We recommend linen-backing for this poster. The poster is somewhat delicate and should be handled with care. Ask us about poster restoration services. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. three-sheet poster for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
