Description

    The Misfits (United Artists, 1961). Poster (40" X 60").
    Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift. A stellar cast with famous director, John Huston and a script by award winning playwright Arthur Miller, making for an American classic film. The shoot was wrought with difficulties and setbacks due to Monroe's growing dependence on alcohol and drugs. Yet, upon release was critically acclaimed and well received. This amazingly rare poster, one of two known copies, announces Magnum Photos assignment of nine of their greatest photographers to document the making of the film. Magnum is and was a famous photographer's cooperative. The photographers who all have one of their photos shown on the poster were: Eve Arnold, Monroe's most trusted photographer; Henri Cartier-Bresson, founder of Magnum and father of modern photo journalism; Ernest Haas, influential color photography innovator; Bruce Davidson, famous civil rights photographer; Cornell Capa, brother of Magnum co-founder Robert Capa; Erich Hartmann (misspelled on poster); Elliott Erwitt; Dennis Stock; well-known photographer of James Dean; and Inge Morath, one of Huston's favorite photographers who later married Arthur Miller, whom she met on the set of this film. The poster had edge wear and some crimping and surface wear just extending into a couple of the upper right photos. A larger proportion of the white background has been airbrushed and the gray field with text has had airbrush applied. The poster is backed with a thin Japanese masa paper. The work is beautifully and professionally done. If you are a fan of this film or its stars, this may be the only chance to acquire this rare poster. Rolled, Fine+.
