Lawrence of Arabia, the classic 1962 (wide release in the U.S. in 1963) David Lean (winner of the Best Director Academy Award for this film) English/U.S. World War I (WWI) desert adventure thriller ("Stands Alone!"; "Unanimously acclaimed as 'One of the all time greatest films!'"; "Best Picture of the Year!"; "Winner of 7 Academy Awards!"; "The motion picture that made great international stars of Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif"; "After five years... The first motion picture from the creators of 'The Bridge On The River Kwai.'"; "A mighty spectacle of action and adventure!"; produced by Sam Spiegel and David Lean; winner of the Best Picture Academy Award) starring Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn, Jack Hawkins, Jose Ferrer, Anthony Quayle, Claude Rains, Arthur Kennedy, Omar Sharif (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; "as 'Ali'"), Peter O'Toole (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award7 for this film; in the title role as T.E. Lawrence; billed as "introducing Peter O'Toole as Lawrence"; which is odd, because he had small parts in several movies prior to this one!), and Zia Mohyeddin

Artist: Howard Terpning
Important Added Info: Note that this classic movie was released at the end of 1962, to qualify for the Academy Awards. Two different styles of one-sheet posters were created for that "pre-Awards" release, and then after it won seven Academy Awards, two new one-sheets were created, both referencing the Academy Awards that the movie had won. The pre-Awards one-sheets are far more rare and far more desirable to collectors, because far fewer examples of them are known to exist, and they are among the most desirable of all 1960s posters! The poster offered here is the pre-Awards "camel style" one-sheet (it does not have a style letter on it). In many ways, this poster is the "Holy Grail" of 1960s movie posters, and has been for a very long time!

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had small paper loss at the top crossfold and minor wear on the foldlines. There were a few pinholes and faint smudges around the edges. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
