    Description

    The Sting (Universal, 1974). International One Sheet (27" X 41").
    In this sublime work of art directed by George Roy Hill, con artists Johnny Hooker (Robert Redford) and Henry Gondorff (Paul Newman) team up to avenge the death of a mutual friend killed by the mob, their mark being the all powerful Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). An intriguing tale of the 1930s Chicago underworld, no one is to be trusted, and as the plot unfolds, the movie's many twists and turns lead to what many consider to be the greatest double cross of all times. With one of the most memorable screen duos, Newman and Redford, an incredible ensemble cast of colorful characters played by Charles Durning, Harold Gould, Eileen Brennan and Ray Walston, to name a few, and an unforgettable music score, all the elements come together in perfect harmony to create an amazing gem of a film. This very rare international one sheet, done in the stylish Art Deco look that was so popular during the 1930s, showcases the stars with incredibly stylish simplicity. The poster has edge wear, light creasing in the top border, some very minor creasing in the image area, and a tear in the top border with archival tape on the verso, none of which detracts from the stunning elegance of this piece. Rolled, Very Fine-.
