Original Italian Billboard Poster (165x78) Large Format Rare Poster Fine Plus Condition

Original Paramount Pictures Italian Tweve-Foglio Bilboard Poster (165x78) for the Michael Curtiz all-time Christmas favorite, WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954) starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen. All of the performances were wonderful, and Irving Berlin's score was about half new songs and half from previous scores. Crosby is charming, witty, and utterly delightful. Danny Kaye is hilarious, and Clooney is riveting as the older of the two Haynes sisters. Vera-Ellen as the younger sister is also wonderful and performs some unbelievably good dancing. Of course, Crosby sang "White Christmas" in an earlier Paramount musical, HOLIDAY INN (1942) also scored by Irving Berlin. Indeed, Berlin won the Academy Award for Best Original Song that year and was nominated for Best Original Song for "Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep" in WHITE CHRISTMAS. This was also the first film done in Paramount's new widescreen process called VistaVision. The poster has art by Ercole Brini, one of the most beloved of the Italian artists. This poster is quite large, and was never actually used in a theater. Condition is fine plus. Seriously rare. MovieArt Austin sells only authentic movie posters.
