    Description

    The Misfits (United Artists, 1961). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Poster (40" X 60") Style Z.
    Combine the stellar cast of Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift with famous director John Huston, a script by award winning playwright Arthur Miller, and a classic American film is born. The shoot was wrought with difficulties and setbacks due to Monroe's growing dependence on alcohol and drugs, yet was critically acclaimed and well received upon release. This amazingly rare poster announces Magnum Photos assignment of nine of their greatest photographers to document the making of the film, including Eve Arnold, Monroe's most trusted photographer, as well as Henri Cartier-Bresson, founder of Magnum and father of modern photo journalism. Backed on linen and professionally restored, this style Z poster has received repairs to edge wear, pinholes, small tears, and some creasing, including a vertical crease near the left border. The borders and much of the white background have been airbrushed. Some of these issues are still faintly visible and there are a few subtle post-restoration smudges. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
