DescriptionThe Prince and the Showgirl (Warner Brothers, 1957). One Sheet (27" X 41").
Lawrence Olivier is a stuffy Balkan prince finally swayed by the charms of a showgirl, played with relish by Marilyn Monroe. Apparently, the production was troubled (Olivier would not direct another film for over a decade), but it doesn't come across on screen, and this is a prime example of Ms. Monroe's unique brand of appeal. As classy as it is classic, this poster shows edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, creases, and mild tears. There are pinholes in the corners and background, and a stain in the upper border. Some very light touchup has been partially applied to a few of the pinholes, and there is paper tape on the verso at the corners. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
