ARENA (1953)

Vintage original 41 x 27" (104 x 69") one sheet poster, USA. Gig Young, Jean Hagen, Polly Bergen, dir: Richard Fleischer; MGM. Promoted by MGM as the first 3-D Western, this poster, appropriately, has the expected "coming at you out of the screen" graphics. Folded, no pinholes, there is a bit of fold wear at upper fold, and a tiny tear in top blank margin, overall NEAR FINE.

ASPHALT JUNGLE, THE (1950)
ASPHALT JUNGLE, THE (1950) $1,000.00

Vintage original 22 x 28" (55 x 70 cm.) half sheet poster, USA. Sterling Hayden, Louis Calhern, Jean Hagen, James Whitmore, Sam Jaffe, Marilyn Monroe, dir: John Huston, MGM.

Classic film noir about a heist which, after being successfully executed, unravels with tragic consequences. Though John Huston intended the role of Angela Phinlay for Lola Albright, Marilyn Monroe won the role and it was the first in which her great dramatic abilities were explored. Poster features Monroe prominently, thanks to agent Johnny Hyde's work in placing her there amongst the films MGM contract players.

Poster is paper-backed. There are creases at all...

ATLANTIQUE, LATITUDE 41° [A NIGHT TO REMEMBER] (1958)
ATLANTIQUE, LATITUDE 41° [A NIGHT TO REMEMBER] (1958) $1,500.00

Vintage original 30 x 46" (78 x 117 cm.) poster, France. Kenneth More, Ronald Allen, Robert Ayres, Honor Blackman, Anthony Bushell, dir: Roy Ward Baker; Rank Organisation. There have been several fine depictions on film of the epic tragedy of RMS Titanic, this one based on Walter Lord's definitive book. Even with the most recent epic film telling, critics still consider this "the definitive cinematic telling of the story," (Heyer 2012, p.104). Because many of the survivors were living when the book and film were made, exact accuracy could be achieved and the film was made in order of sequence.

AWAKENING, THE (1928)
AWAKENING, THE (1928) $750.00

Vintage original 22 x 28" (55 x 71 cm.) half sheet poster, USA. Vilma Banky, Walter, Byron, Louis Wolheim, George Davis, dir: Victor Fleming; Samuel Goldwyn Company. A very fine example of early Art Deco design elements used on a movie poster. The film is lost and of interest is that it was Academy Award-nominated (for art direction to William Cameron Menzies) during the organization's second year. It was also a work by director Victor Fleming and a vehicle for top Goldwyn silent star, Vilma Banky. Brought from Russia, she was greatly celebrated until her thick accent proved too much...

"As The Beatles gained national attention in Britain, Taylor's editors conceived of running a column...
