    Description

    The Sting (Universal, 1973). Very Fine- on Linen. Silk Screen One Sheet (27.5" X 41") Alternate Style.
    George Roy Hill directs Robert Redford and Paul Newman as con artists who team up to avenge the death of a mutual friend killed by the mob, their mark being the all powerful Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). An intriguing tale of the 1930s Chicago underworld, no one is to be trusted, and as the plot unfolds, the movie's many twists and turns lead to what many consider to be the greatest film double-cross of all time. With the most memorable screen duo of Newman and Redford, and an incredible ensemble cast of colorful characters, the film was rewarded with seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Director and Screenplay. This rare silk screened alternate style one sheet was created in the distinctive Art Deco look that was so popular during the 1930s, and looked fantastic even before professional corrections to slight edge wear, small tears, and a scratch in Robert Redford's hat. There are a couple of minute unaddressed stains in the background that is barely perceptible, as well as thin cracks in the black printing. However, these issues do nothing to detract from the excellent presentation of this highly desirable poster.
