This is an original, unfolded, half-sheet movie poster from 1954 for The Barefoot Contessa starring Humphrey Bogart, Ava Gardner, Edmond O'Brien, Marius Goring, Valentina Cortesa and Rossano Brazzi. Joseph L. Mankiewicz directed the classic drama.
The Style B poster measures 22" x 28" and has been paperbacked (attached to a thin, acid-free paper backing for preservation, restoration and stability). The poster was in very good condition prior to paperbacking. It had a tear in the top-center of the poster and some wear/smudges around the outer edges. It has never been folded. Due to the the paperbacking, the poster will be shipped flat to avoid damage in transit.
Please look closely at the photos (this is the exact poster you are buying).
This extremely rare and collectible poster, printed in 1954 to promote the theatrical release of The Barefoot Contessa, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
