    Description

    The Bridge on the River Kwai (Columbia, 1958). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style B.
    A battle of wills takes place between the commander of a Japanese POW camp (Sessue Hayakawa) and a British Colonel (Alec Guinness) centering on the building of a bridge in what has become one of the most loved war films of all time. The picture would earn seven Academy awards, including Best Director for David Lean, and Best Picture. This more scarce photographic style one sheet would make a fantastic companion piece to the style A, which is also offered in this sale. Professional restoration has addressed a tear in the upper background. Touchup has been applied to the folds, and the borders and blue background have been airbrushed. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
