Description

    La Grande Illusion (RAC, Post War-1946). French Double Panel (63" X 94"). Widely considered one of the greatest war films ever made, Jean Renoir's La Grande Illusion is at the same time thought provoking and witty. Two French pilots from different social classes (Pierre Fresnay and Jean Gabin) are shot down while on a surveillance mission over Germany during WWI. While held prisoner in a POW camp, they befriend other prisoners while plotting an escape under the watchful eye of the camp's commander (Erich von Stroheim). This impressively large country of origin poster is in remarkable shape. There was a small scratch in the top border along with minor separations and slight tanning at the folds. But now, thanks to an excellent professional restoration and dazzling Herve' Morvan (1917-1980) artwork, this poster is a very displayable joy to behold. Very Fine on Linen.
