    Description

    Lawrence of Arabia (Columbia, 1962). One Sheet (27" X 41") Roadshow 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. Superb performances were also turned in by an incredible supporting cast including Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn, and newcomer Omar Sharif. Over the last fifty years the film has inspired a multitude of movie makers, such as the now prolific Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg. Artist Howard Terpning masters the tension and drama of the film, on a one sheet that 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. It is extremely rare to find this style in such pristine condition! Near Mint+.
