Original Yugoslavian 1960s Re-Release Poster (20x28). Fine.

Original Yugoslavian 1960s Re-release Poster (20x28) for the Cecil B. DeMille biblical epic, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (1956) starring Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter, John Derek and Edward G. Robinson. This is the story of Moses, born to slavery but raised as a son of Pharaoh, who learns of his Hebrew heritage and his divine mission as the deliverer of his people. This was DeMille's second time to direct this story, but his first as a retelling directly of the Bible story; the 1923 version was a silent film told partially in a contemporaneous setting. Heston was chosen for the part because of his striking physical resemblance to Michelangelo's sculpture of Moses. Brynner was chosen because of his magnificent performance in THE KING AND I (1956). Besides the outstanding acting from the major members of the cast, the film boasted a cast of literally thousands, marvelous special effects, beautifully detailed costumes, and lavish sets. The film was nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture but only won the much deserved Oscar for Best Special Effects. This 20x28 Yugoslavian poster is probably a re-release poster from the sixties. Modestly priced, the poster is in fine condition with some small tears. This art is significantly different from the 1956 posters, and shows Moses in two tableau from the film -- the parting of the red sea and the idolatry of the Children of Israel before the Golden Calf. Linen backing would help this small poster. Please see our post on Linen backing and Restoration.
