    The Princess Bride (20th Century Fox, 1987). Autographed One Sheet (27" X 39.75") with COA, John Alvin Artwork.
    John Alvin, one of the foremost poster artists in Hollywood, brought a grand sense of adventure to the audience even before they entered the theater with this poster's fantastical artwork. Bearing the artist's autograph, this already collectible one sheet comes from the Alvin estate with a certificate of authenticity, signed by John Alvin's widow. Rob Reiner's modern classic is a much loved fairy tale loaded with action, adventure, romance, torture, death, pirates, giants, and ROUS's (Rodents of Unusual Size). Cary Elwes is Westley, a noble and quick witted pirate out to rescue his true love, Princess Buttercup (Robin Wright), from the devious Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon). Along the way, he enlists the help of gentle giant Fezzik (Andre the Giant) and Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin), a skilled swordsman out to exact revenge against the six-fingered man (Christopher Guest). Wallace Shawn, Fred Savage, Peter Falk, and Billy Crystal co-star in this delightful family gem. Any fantasy fan would be lucky to own this signed one sheet, which shows only a few issues like edge wear, creasing, and small tears. Rolled, Very Fine-.
