An Original Vintage Theatrical Unfolded Insert Movie Poster (measures 14" x 36" [36 x 91 cm]) (Learn More)

Joseph Mankiewicz's Cleopatra, the 1963 (while it was in limited released in the U.S. in 1963, it did not go into general release in the U.S. until 1964, so the posters all have 1964 dating on them) Joseph L. Mankiewicz English/Swiss/U.S. Egypt historical romantic pseudo-biography epic ("The No1 of all time"; "SEE Cleopatra triumphant entry into Rome!"; "SEE the thrilling battle of Actium!"; "SEE the brutal assassination of Caesar!"; "SEE the love affairs that destroyed an empire!"; "SEE the victorious Roman army occupy Cleopatra's Empire"; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award; based on the novel by Carlo Mario Franzero) starring Elizabeth Taylor (in the title role as Cleopatra), Richard Burton ("as Mark Antony"), Rex Harrison (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; "as Julius Caesar"), Pamela Brown, George Cole, Hume Cronyn, Cesare Danova, Kenneth Haigh (as Brutus), Roddy McDowall (as Octavian), and Loris Loddi. Note that this epic production created epic problems for 20th Century-Fox! Huge salaries and many production delays caused the budget for the movie to soar to then record heights, and it almost bankrupted the studio! Initially, Peter Finch was cast as Julius Caesar and Stephen Boyd as "Mark Antony", and this trade ad, which was released at the very start of production, has them billed under Elizabeth Taylor. But during filming in England, she became ill, and production had to be halted, since she was in virtually every scene of the movie. Director Rouben Mamoulian quit to work on another project, and so did Peter Finch and Stephen Boyd, who had to quit due to prior commitments for other movies, and they were of course replaced by Rex Harrison and Richard Burton.

Artist: Howard Terpning
Important Added Info: Note that this poster has never been machine folded! Some pre-1970 insert posters were machine folded twice horizontally at the poster exchange, while some were not. It can be difficult to find an unfolded example of many pre-1970 insert posters (note that most post-1970 inserts were NOT machine folded, so they are pretty much only found unfolded, and therefore this does not apply to those inserts).

Condition: very good to fine. A small portion of the lower edge has very slightly darkened and there are a few faint creases scattered in just a few areas, but overall the insert is in excellent condition!
