    Description

    Bus Stop (20th Century Fox, 1956). Very Fine- on Linen. Poster (30.25" X 40") Style Y.
    By 1956, Marilyn Monroe had become a star with successes in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire, and especially The Seven Year Itch, putting her in a much stronger negotiating position with her studio. This film marks the first made by Marilyn Monroe Productions, along with a salary that finally reflected her worth and the presence of noted dramatic coach Paula Strasberg, who would be on the set of all subsequent Monroe pictures. Her hard work paid off and Monroe received critical praise for her performance as down-and-out saloon singer Chérie and her rendition of "That Old Black Magic" by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer. Featuring great images of stars Monroe and Don Marray, this poster has received professional touchup to edge wear, a few thin creases, and a chip in the left border. The borders and parts of the background have been airbrushed. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
