John Huston's Moulin Rouge (released in the U.S. in 1953), the 1952 John Huston (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award for this film) English Paris France fictional-biography musical melodrama ("Wild, Wicked, Wonderful Paris ...All her Loves, Ladies and Lusty Legends!"; "...The most startling and daring love story ever told!"; "All its sin... its splendor... its lusty love for life!"; "From the novel 'Moulin Rouge' by Pierre La Mure"; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award) starring Jose Ferrer (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; as the famous diminutive artist Toulouse-Lautrec; Ferrer played the entire movie on his knees, with his legs strapped to the back of his thighs), Zsa Zsa Gabor, Suzanne Flon, Colette Marchand (nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for this film; billed as "introducing Colette Marchand"), and Claude Nollier

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this is one half of the French 2-panel poster from the very first release of this movie in France (the movie had two quick re-releases in the 1950s, and first release paper is extremely rare). While only half of the poster is present, it does have a pretty complete image, and the title is at the bottom of the poster, so it certainly can still be displayed and enjoyed, but do not bid on it unless you can accept that it is half of the original 2-panel poster.

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Note that this poster ships in a very long tube (at least 33" long, but possibly 50" long or more). Therefore the shipping for this poster will be more than that for a poster that ships in a tube 32" or shorter, and possibly much more. Please bear this added shipping expense in mind before bidding on this poster. You can tell how long of a tube this poster needs to ship in by looking at the shorter dimension of its length and width and then adding 4" to that (so a 47" x 63" poster will need to ship in a 51" long tube).

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: fair. As noted above, only the left panel of this 2-panel poster is present. The part of the poster that is present had tiny paper loss at the crossfolds and just a few tiny bits of paper loss and small tears on small parts of some folds, with a few small tears and smudges around the edges. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was well backed, but after it was backed, it was roughly handled, and the poster acquired creases down the right edge, which caused tears and one small area of paper loss in the excess rice paper, but not affecting the poster itself, so it is not important, and it of course will not show when the poster is framed.
