    Description

    La Parisienne (Cinedis, 1957). Full-Bleed French Grande (47" X 62.75") Jean Mascii Artwork.
    One of the few women to successfully challenge Marilyn Monroe's "sex goddess" status in the 1950s, Brigitte Bardot took Hollywood by storm. Beautiful and bodacious, Bardot is at her best in this sparkling slapstick comedy about the war of the sexes, playing a jealous wife set on making her supposedly unfaithful husband (Henri Vidal) just as jealous as she is. Of course, the wily temptress sets her sights on none other than a visiting prince, played by Charles Boyer. Top poster artist Jean Mascii provides a gorgeous illustration for this country of origin poster, which has had partial touchup to the folds. Still visible at the top edge is a small tear, a tape stain, and a mild paper lift. There is also an ink collector's stamp in the lower left corner and slight toning in the borders and folds. From the collection of John McBride. Very Fine- on Linen


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
