    Description

    The Great Escape (United Artists, 1963). Fine on Linen. Six Sheet (80.5" X 77.75"). Frank McCarthy Artwork.
    Historical accuracy aside, this is a fine film with an extraordinary ensemble cast. The credits read like a who's who of talent: Steve McQueen, James Garner, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, David McCallum, Richard Attenborough, and Donald Pleasence (who had actually been a POW in a German camp during the last year or so of World War II). Restoration has addressed fold wear and separation, pinholes, chips in the borders and folds, and some tears, including a large horizontal tear at the top left side of the blue background. These issues are still somewhat visible after restoration and there is some warping to the linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
