    Description

    The Great Escape (United Artists, 1963). Three Sheet (41" X 78") Frank McCarthy Artwork.
    Steve McQueen (Cooler King), James Garner (the Scrounger), Charles Bronson (Tunnel King), Richard Attenborough (Big X), Donald Pleasence (the Forger), James Coburn (Manufacturer) and too many others to mention make this true story about the largest escape of POWs in World War II one of the greatest war films ever made. This magnificent poster, featuring artwork by Frank McCarthy, has received partial restoration to fold wear and separations, pinholes into the interior, chips in the left border, and border tears. Some of the pinholes are torn and a few of the tears extend into the image area. There was a large tear from the left border into Richard Attenborough's leg. Some of these issues may still be visible, as well as a slight bit of unaddressed writing bleedthrough and a folded back tear in the image background. Fine+on Linen.
