An Original 1976 (from the first release of this movie in Cuba) Vintage Theatrical Unfolded Cuban Movie Poster (measures 20" x 30" [51 x 76 cm]) (Learn More)

The Lion at World's End (released theatrically in the U.S. in 1977 as "Christian the Lion"), the 1971 Bill Travers English adventure documentary ("Love... Laughter... Adventure... and the 'Born Free' legend grows") featuring Bill Travers, Virginia McKenna, George Adamson, John Rendall, Anthony Bourke, Terrence Adamson, "and the Lions" Christian, Boy, Katinia, Mona, Lisa, Juma, Jessica, and Supercub. Note that this film was shown on television (TV) in the U.S. in 1972 under the original title, but did not get a theatrical release until 1977 (as "Christian the Lion"). Also, note that Christian was born in captivity and purchased by John Rendall and Anthony 'Ace' Bourke from Harrods department store in London in 1969. However, Christian's growing size and the increasing cost of his care led the men to realize that they could not keep him in London. When Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna (stars of the film Born Free) visited the men and met Christian, they suggested that they ask the assistance of George Adamson. Adamson, a Kenyan conservationist, who together with his wife Joy raised and released Elsa the lioness (the story told in the film Born Free), agreed to reintegrate Christian into the wild at their compound in the Kora National Reserve. One year after Adamson released Christian to the wild, his former owners decided to go looking for him to see whether Christian would remember them. He did, and with him were two lionesses who accepted the men as well. A video of the reunion has been shared on social media millions of times!

Important Added Info: Years ago, some collector had this poster mounted onto foamcore. While most collectors do not like this, I have seen many posters that have been mounted on foamcore for years, and it never has any ill effects on the poster, so I am not sure why there is a bias against it.

Note that this item needs to be shipped in an oversized flat package. Most of these items absolutely can only be sent in flat packages, and could not possibly be rolled into a tube. Some of them might SEEM like they could be rolled in a tube, like a half-sheet, but they can't. The reason these items are in this auction is specifically because they CAN'T be rolled (because rolling any of them would damage them, even if they somehow can be rolled). So please bear in mind that this item must be sent in a LARGE flat package (the size of the package will depend on the size of the item when ready for shipping), and bear this added expense in mind before placing a bid on it.

Condition: good. The poster is glued to a foamcore board however it is lifting from the board in several areas, with some glue staining. Please see our super-sized image to get a good sense of the condition of this item prior to placing a bid and please do not bid unless you can accept the defects described above, or you are willing to pay to have them properly restored.
