    Cabiria (Itala Film, 1914). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Italian 4 - Fogli (57" X 80").
    Making its Heritage debut is this fantastic country of origin poster from one of the oldest epic films ever made, Giovanni Pastrone's Cabiria. A breathtaking spectacle, the picture had a worldwide influence on cinematography. Particularly notable was Pastrone's invention of the zooming tracking shot, where a camera was mounted on a dolly to follow the action within a set. Cabiria's massive cast, ornate sets, stunts, and extensive runtime of 2.5 hours made a lasting impression on American directors like D. W. Griffith and Cecil B. DeMille, who would become Hollywood's first masters of the epic genre. A gorgeous image by itself with its stone litho printing, this extremely rare country of origin poster has benefitted from touchup to the folds, small chips, and some tears, including a couple of mirrored vertical tears where the two panels join. There is some faint staining still visible towards the bottom and the linen has some mild rippling. Overall, it still presents impressively and is a great piece of film history.
