    Description

    Lawrence of Arabia (Columbia, 1962). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A. Based on T. E. Lawrence's The Seven Pillars of Wisdom, this incredible motion picture was nominated for eighteen Oscars and won seven, including Best Director (David Lean), Best Score (Maurice Jarre), and Best Picture. The film was the true account and epic depiction of the revolt of the Arabs against the Ottoman empire during World War I. Peter O'Toole established himself as a major star in the lead role of Lawrence and the rest of the cast was just as brilliant, including Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn, and newcomer Omar Sharif. The film has long since transcended into legend as one of the most important films ever made, inspiring other directors such as Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg. This one sheet is the most sought after poster for the film, with art by Howard Terpning. The condition is stunning; generally when this rare poster is offered, it has been restored. This example is the best we've ever seen, with only a couple of very slight "dings" keeping it from grading even higher. This style A one sheet is dated 1963; most of the original posters from the film's roadshow release are dated 1962. This example was probably printed sometime later in the film's release, during 1963, as the film was being shown for more than nine months in theaters. Near Mint.
