Original Italian 2 Fogli Poster (39x55). 1966 Re-release. Folded. Fine Condition. Art by Nano.

Original Italian Re-Release (1966) 39x55 poster for the Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise iconic musical, WEST SIDE STORY (1961) starring Natalie Wood, George Chakiris, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, and Rita Moreno. Even though this poster is for the first Italian re-release, this 1966 Nano poster is the most desired Italian poster for WEST SIDE STORY. The art is based on a design that was developed for the original U.S. release, but was rarely used. This film was, of course, a seminal adaptation of the Shakespearian tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. Warring New York City gangs replace the feuding families from the play. Shooting lasted for 6 months, and sound mixing and editing took another 7 months to complete. The film was a box office smash hit and won 10 Academy AwardsÑincluding Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor to Chakiris, Best Supporting Actress to Moreno, and Best Director to Robbins and Wise. This original Italian poster is folded and in fine condition. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is authentic, vintage. MovieArt Austin will sell no reproductions.
