    Description

    The Fabulous World of Jules Verne (Mokep, 1958). Hungarian Poster (22.5" X 32").
    This sensational Hungarian poster has never been offered before, and is an absolutely extraordinary representation of the Czech film The Fabulous World of Jules Verne, based on the 1896 Verne novel Face the Flag. The tale is cleverly filmed in a special process which causes every image on screen to resemble an old-fashioned woodcut engraving, which the poster offered here mimics to great effect. With visual imagery and over the top performances by the cast, this delightful film makes Verne's 19th century "futuristic" novel spring to life. Sinister millionaire Artigas (Miloslav Holub) schemes to conquer the world using a mega-explosive device. The plot thickens, stirring the imagination with a pirate submarine, a volcanic lair, an observation balloon, an abduction, and even a bit of romance. There are pinholes in the corners and right edge wear with small chips. Fine/Very Fine.
