This is an original, French grande theatrical movie poster from 1955 for a theatrical re-release of Gone with the Wind. The film stars Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Olivia de Havilland, Leslie Howard, Hattie McDaniel, and Thomas Mitchell. Victor Fleming directed the classic Civil War drama. Roger Soubie is the artist for the poster.
The postermeasures 46.5" x 63" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in very good condition prior to linen-backing and restoration with pinholes around the edges from theatrical display, some wear with tiny separations along some of the fold lines and some minor edge wear. It was folded at the time of printing but the fold lines are much less visible after linen-backing. Itwill be rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.
Please look closely at the photos (this is the exact poster you are buying). It is not cropped or a stock image. The black circles in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This extremely rare and collectible poster, printed in 1955 to promote a French theatrical re-release of Gone with the Wind, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
Please note that this poster is one of two Roger Soubie designs for the French 1955 theatrical re-release. We have also sourced a linen-backed, French grande poster with the alternate design and it is also currently available for purchase.
