Once Upon a Time in the West (Paramount, 1969). Very Fine- on Linen. Six Sheet (81" X 76.5"). Frank McCarthy Artwork. Sergio Leone's epic of the American West cast Henry Fonda as a villain; an unusual role for the screen legend. Charles Bronson portrayed his nemesis, bent on taking revenge on the man who murdered his family. This large format poster, considered the best created for the film, is exceptionally rare. Professional restoration has been applied to correct slight fold wear and separations, a thin scratch in the left border and background, small tears, as well as a few chips in the folds and borders. Corrections have been made to Jack Elam and Lionel Stander's credits. While there is airbrushing to parts of the background, the images have very little. There are some slight post-restoration creases at the edges and faint smudges.
