Description

    Raintree County (MGM, 1957). Standee (63" W X 98" T) and Door Panels (4) (20" X 60") and Set of 3 Picture Frame Portraits (16" X 22.5").
    Reportedly the most expensive film made up to the date of its release, this film was derailed midway through production by Montgomery Clift's disfiguring car accident. When released by MGM in widescreen "MGM Camera 65" they gave it a huge amount of publicity and promotional care as evidenced by this standee and door panel set. With artwork by the "King of Pulps" Walter M. Baumhofer, this beautiful four piece set of door panels and deluxe standee that is made up of four pieces and stands over 8' tall would be a wonderful addition to any collection. Also included is a double sided banner with artwork by Baumhofer as well as the original set of three portraits on cardboard which expand to give the look of a frame in relief. The standee base has some wear to edges and staining on the upper edge. Eva Marie Saint's standee has a broken right hand which has been carefully reattached. The picture frame portraits are by Bassford. The original box the standee came shipped in is also included in this lot. This is a spectacular grouping of material of which few remaining copies could still exist. Fine-.
