DescriptionThe Wizard of Oz (CIA, 1948). Very Fine- on Linen. First Post-War Release Italian 2 - Fogli (39.5" X 55") Carlantonio Longi Artwork.
Based on Frank Baum's classic novel, this timeless tale of Dorothy's journey over the rainbow grows more popular with each passing generation. Starring the sixteen-year-old Judy Garland and a cast of extraordinary performers, the film is magic from the first black and white moment until the glorious Technicolor end. This Italian poster, which was first released in Italy after World War II in 1948, is one of the best posters ever created for this classic and certainly one of the most scarce of Italian posters. One of two known copies to exist, the poster has small tears, pinholes and slight abrasions. There is fold wear touchup as well. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $15,000 - $30,000.
