    Description

    Lawrence of Arabia (Columbia, 1962). Full-Bleed French Double Grande (62" X 92") Georges Kerfyser Artwork.
    The poster campaign for David Lean's landmark production was as epic as the film itself, including this majestic, color-drenched French double grande with Georges Kerfyser artwork. Although Lean began his career as an editor in the British cinema, he was to make his lasting impression in the movies as a director of quality epics. He won two Oscars for Best Direction for his work on The Bridge on the River Kwai and Lawrence of Arabia, and was the recipient of a lifetime achievement award from the American Film Institute in 1990. This film has been heralded as a true masterpiece of the cinema and has inspired filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg. This rare French double grande will make an outstanding showpiece in any collection. The poster shows light edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, and small tears and nicks at the edges. There is some mild toning in the folds and a stain at the top of the right vertical fold. Folded, Very Fine.
