    Once Upon A Time in the West (Paramount, 1969). Italian (39" X 55"). This original Italian 2 folio is considered the true "country of origin" poster as this was an Italian film. Director Sergio Leone cast Henry Fonda as a cold-blooded killer and ruthless rancher in this seminal Western. Charles Bronson stars as a man bent on revenge and Claudia Cardinale is the woman who comes between them. During the course of Leone's career, he made many classics, but many feel that this is his lasting masterpiece of the cinema. Ennio Morricone composed the haunting musical score to the original screenplay by Sergio Leone and Bernardo Bertolucci. With art by Rodolfo Gasparri, this poster captures not only magnificent portraits of the film's cast, but also the fantastic opening sequence with Bronson gunning down Woody Strode and Jack Elam. The poster has minimal color touch-up to the fold lines. Very Fine+ on Linen.
