Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (MGM, 1958). Folded, Fine+. One Sheet (27" X 41"). Reynold Brown Artwork. This is one of the two printings of this original poster and considered the best of the two! This beautiful sheet has the orange overlay on the yellow background, wherein one style is just the plain yellow background. Richard Brooks directs this riveting adaptation of Tennessee Williams' play. Starring Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman and Burl Ives, the film remains perhaps one of the most interesting and faithful adaptations of the playwright's many hits. The poster shows fold wear and separation, slight creases, and pinholes. There are a few tears, small chips, as well as unobtrusive stains and smudges. Also visible is a vertical printing irregularity. There are several pieces of archival and cellophane tape on the verso bracing some of the folds.
