    Description

    Lawrence of Arabia (Columbia, 1962). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. British Quad (30" X 40").
    Substantially scarce, this brilliant country of origin quad has made only one other appearance at Heritage, marking an excellent opportunity for fans of this landmark production. Winner of seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director, David Lean's unforgettable war film made a star of Peter O'Toole and virtually defined the word "epic." Based on T. E. Lawrence's own self-published memoir The Seven Pillars of Wisdom, it tells the story of Lawrence's struggle with his own ideals as a British military officer in the midst of the Arabic rebellion against the Turks. The film was further supported with an incredible musical score, beautiful cinematography, and excellent performances by Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn, and Omar Sharif, who gained an Oscar nomination for his role of Sherif Ali. Light touchup on this poster has been applied to the folds, pinholes, and a few small tears. There is some noticeable touchup in the right background under the title, but the poster presents well overall with its iconic image.


    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
