DescriptionCarmen Jones (20th Century Fox, 1954). Spanish One Sheet (27.75" X 39.5") Francisco Fernández "Jano" Zarza Artwork.
In a bold move for 1950s, 20th Century Fox created a rare all-Black production for mainstream distribution, with director Otto Preminger casting the talented Dorothy Dandridge in the title role. Her incredible performance earned Dandridge an Oscar nomination for Best Actress, the first back woman to ever gain a nomination in the category. Great performances from such acclaimed actors as Harry Belafonte and Pearl Bailey also feature in the film, setting the stage for Dandridge's ruinous vixen. Offered here for only the second time, Heritage presents a rare Spanish one sheet for the picture, showcasing expressive artwork of Dandridge by the ever-talented Francisco Fernández "Jano" Zarza. Touchup has been applied to the folds, some ink stamp bleedthrough, and the borders have been partially airbrushed. There is a minor bit of post-restoration surface wear in the upper left border, and the linen has been trimmed to the borders. Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $300 - $600.
