Thousands of believers shouted his praises!"; "Damn Him! Three women damned his soul!"; "If there was a dollar to be made-Gantry would make it... If there was a soul to be saved-Gantry would save it..."; "For Adults Only. No Children Under 16 Admitted Unless Accompanied By An Adult"; "Based on the bold novel by Nobel Prize winner Sinclair Lewis"; "Nobel Prize Winner Sinclair Lewis' bold novel of passion and damnation now bursts full-life across the screen!"; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award; note that Burt Lancaster did an excellent job portraying the lead of Sinclair Lewis' novel, but the events of the novel had to be drastically toned down for the screen, so that it would not appear that the movie was anti-organized religion, just anti-fake faith healers!) starring Burt Lancaster (winner of the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; in the title role as Elmer Gantry), Jean Simmons (as Sister Sharon Falconer), Dean Jagger, Arthur Kennedy, Shirley Jones (winner of the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for this film), and Patti Page

Important Added Info: Note that most 40x60s from this period were only sent to theaters rolled. This poster was folded multiple times. It is possible that it was done at the exchange, but it seems more likely that it was by the theater that received the poster. Please do not bid on this poster unless you can accept that it has multiple folds (see our image).

Condition: good. There are several tape repairs on the back of the poster.
