Lawrence of Arabia, the classic 1962 (wide release in the U.S. in 1963) David Lean (winner of the Best Director Academy Award for this film) English/U.S. World War I (WWI) desert adventure thriller ("Stands Alone!"; "Unanimously acclaimed as 'One of the all time greatest films!'"; "Best Picture of the Year!"; "Winner of 7 Academy Awards!"; "The motion picture that made great international stars of Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif"; "After five years... The first motion picture from the creators of 'The Bridge On The River Kwai.'"; "A mighty spectacle of action and adventure!"; produced by Sam Spiegel and David Lean; winner of the Best Picture Academy Award) starring Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn, Jack Hawkins, Jose Ferrer, Anthony Quayle, Claude Rains, Arthur Kennedy, Omar Sharif (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; "as 'Ali'"), and Peter O'Toole (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award7 for this film; in the title role as T.E. Lawrence; billed as "introducing Peter O'Toole as Lawrence"; which is odd, because he had small parts in several movies prior to this one!)

Artist: Howard Terpning
Important Added Info: Note that for this classic English/U.S. co-production, the producers knew that it would surely win multiple Academy Awards, and so it was given a very limited pre-Academy Award release at the end of 1962, so that it would qualify for the Academy Awards given the following year. There were two different pre-Academy Awards one-sheets created, one of which has this art of Peter O'Toole riding on a camel, and the other of which has silhouette art of Peter O'Toole, and both of these posters are many times more rare than the one-sheets which credit this classic movie as an Academy Award Winner, because those one-sheets were solely used for the very limited 1962 release, and would not have been used at any point after that, because of course, the studio very much wanted to make those viewing the posters aware of the Academy Awards the movie had won!

Condition: very good to fine. The poster has very slight darkening on the back of the top quarter of the vertical fold, which was on the outside when the poster was fully folded. It has a few tiny dot stains on the back of the top left corner, and they slightly show through to the front. Otherwise, the poster is in excellent condition!
