Columbia Pictures Original Canadian Posters (17x26) Six posters. Very Fine Condition

Original Columbia Pictures Canadian 17x26 posters (six posters), modeled on the Italian fotobustas, for the Franco Zeffirelli Shakespearean comedy, THE TAMING OF THE SHREW (1967) starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Cyril Cusack, and Michael Hordern. This brilliant adaptation of the Shakespearean comedy was co-produced by Taylor and Burton, who put up $1 million of their own money and took a percentage of the profits instead of fixed salaries. All of the actors are so natural in their roles that the sometimes difficult, if not obtuse, Shakespearean verse sounds instead like believable conversation. The film boasts gorgeous sets and costumes; indeed, the films received Oscar nominations for Best Art/Set Decoration and Best Costume Design. Occasionally poster were made for the Canadian market that are formatted like the Italian fotobustas. These poster would appear to be fotobustas until you observe that all the text is in English. Six brilliant scenes from the film. MovieArt Austin guarantees that these Canadian posters date from the first release in Canada. Condition is very fine on all six posters. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
