    Description

    Lawrence of Arabia (Columbia, 1962). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A. Based on T. E. Lawrence's book, 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. A true account and epic depiction of the revolt of the Arabs against the Ottoman empire during World War I, it established Peter O'Toole as a major star in the lead role of Lawrence. Making the movie even better was a brilliant supporting cast, including Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn, and newcomer Omar Sharif. Since its initial release, the film has come to be regarded as one of the most important movies ever made, inspiring other directors such as Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg. This one sheet, with its dramatic art by Howard Terpning, is the most sought after poster for the film. This particular example is in stunning condition, with only some very light wrinkling in the top corners keeping it from an even higher grade. Most examples of this style have undergone some amount of restoration prior to being offered for sale. Not this one. 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, as the film played for more than nine months in theaters. Near Mint+.
