Description

    Stairway to Heaven (Eagle Lion, 1946). Australian One Sheet (27" X 41"). More famous today as "A Matter of Life and Death," this British fantasy stars David Niven as a World War II RAF pilot who falls to Earth without a parachute, yet lands on a beach unharmed. Aside from breaking the laws of physics, this miracle also violates the rules of Heaven. A celestial court convenes to determine whether Niven should ascend to his intended place in Heaven or reside on Earth to pursue a romance with an American girl (Kim Hunter). Filmmakers Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger decided to film the actual, earthly realm in Technicolor, while the ideal realm of Heaven was shot in black-and-white -- a seeming reversal of convention. This Australian one sheet markets the sleeper hit of 1946 in beautiful stone lithography. Professional restoration repaired a few small tears on the right side as well as paper loss in the central crossfold and on the left side. Fine- on Linen.
