    Description

    Children of Paradise (Pathe Cinema, 1945). French Grandes (3) (43" X 63") Jacques Fourastié & Eliane Bonabel Artwork.
    Many consider Children of Paradise to be one of the greatest, if not the best, French film ever made. Directed by Marcel Carné and written by Jacques Prévert during the German occupation of France, this three hour drama became 1945's third highest selling picture at the French box office and still garners acclaim from modern critics. Offered here are these very scarce, single sided posters, an uncommon sight during wartime France's massive paper shortage. Designed by Jacques Fourastié and drawn by illustrator Eliane Bonabel, these exquisite character portraits highlight cast members Maria Casarés, Louis Salou, and Pierre Renoir. They generally show mild edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, creases and misfolds, and pinholes in the borders. Some of the posters have toning in the borders and folds, but are in overall good shape for their age. Folded, Very Fine-.


    Estimate: $1,800 - $3,600.
