Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 103 cm.) one sheet poster style B, USA. Peter Sellers, Claudine Longet, Natalia Borisova, Jean Carson, Marge Champion, dir: Blake Edwards: United Artists.

Hurndi V. Bakshi (Peter Sellers) is an actor from India. During the filming of a costume epic a list of those to fire on the film gets confused with the studio head's guest list for a party and Hurndi appears for the party, where everyone assumes he belongs.

PARTY, THE (1968)
PARTY, THE (1968) $300.00

Vintage original 22 x 14" (56 x 36 cm.) window card poster, USA. Peter Sellers, Claudine Longet, dir: Blake Edwards; United Artists. I obtained this from a now-deceased collector friend, who had a few autographed movie posters, all of which, like this, he obtained in person. I have examined known examples of director Edwards and composer Mancini's autographs, and I am sure that these are authentic. The window card uses the raucous and colorful Jack Davis art.

Unfolded, with very light creasing at edges, JUST ABOUT FINE.
