DescriptionCleopatra (20th Century Fox, 1963). Very Fine on Linen. Premiere British Quad (30" X 40"). Howard Terpning Artwork.
Elizabeth Taylor, the Queen of Hollywood, was the perfect choice to portray Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt. The film was the largest production in the history of Hollywood and it almost drove 20th Century Fox into bankruptcy. It was also the film where Taylor met her leading man and future husband, Richard Burton. This is the very scarce British quad created for the premiere. Prior to being backed on linen, this poster had light fold wear and pinholes in the borders.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
