La Dolce Vita (sometimes referred to as "Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita"; literally translates to "The Sweet Life"), the classic 1960 (released in the U.S. in 1961) Federico Fellini (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award) Italian/French romantic melodrama ("Uncut uncensored now for all to see... the nights, the drunken revels, the sin and the sinners, the perverted decadence of the jet set rich who live what they call 'the sweet life'"; "The most talked about - the most shocked about film of our years"; about a successful Italian movie critic who is dissatisfied with the emptiness of his life, even though he is surrounded by rich and famous people and has a beautiful girlfriend, and he yearns to understand why) starring Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg, Anouk Aimee, Yvonne Furneaux, Magali Noel, Lex Barker, Jacques Sernas, Alain Cuny, Annibale Ninchi, Walter Santesso, Nadia Gray, and Franca Pasut. Note that Astor Pictures, which had been known for mostly re-releasing classic U.S. movies in the 1940s and 1950s, acquired the rights for the first American release of this classic Italian movie, which they released on April 19, 1961.

Condition: good to very good. The poster is linenbacked; prior to restoration the poster had several rough creases where the poster had been folded across the center. It also had a semi-circular area of paper loss in the upper right border (in the blank white area). There was a circular area of paper loss in the lower right corner of the image, including part of Mastroianni's sleeve and hand. There were light scuffs across the top of the image and across the bottom 4" of the image. The above defects were repaired and greatly minimized during the linenbacking process. They are still noticeable from close-up, but from any distance away they are far less prominent and not particularly distracting.
