Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Three-Sheet Movie Poster (measures 41" x 81") (Learn More)

My Fair Lady, the classic 1964 George Cukor (winner of the Best Director Academy Award for this film) romantic musical ("The most loverly motion picture event of all!......"; "Based upon the play 'My Fair Lady'"; "From the play by Bernard Shaw"; adapted from the hit Broadway play by Lerner and Loewe, which itself was adapted from George Bernard Shaw's non-musical "Pygmalion"; winner of the Best Picture Academy Award) starring Audrey Hepburn (as Eliza Doolittle), Rex Harrison (winner of the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; as Henry Higgins), Stanley Holloway (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; as Alfred Doolittle), Wilfrid Hyde-White (as Colonel Pickering), Gladys Cooper (nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for this film), Jeremy Brett (as Freddy Eynsford-Hill), and Theodore Bikel. Of course, the making of this movie was the center of a major controversy! When Hollywood went to make this movie adaptation of this hit play in 1964 (after it completed its Broadway run, where Julie Andrews had played Eliza Doolittle), they were fine with retaining the lead stars of the stage production EXCEPT for Julie Andrews, because she wasn't a big enough "name"! They replaced her with Audrey Hepburn, which was especially surprising, given that Miss Hepburn could not sing the part, and Marni Nixon was brought in to sing the songs for her (but that was uncredited and carefully kept under wraps, and Miss Nixon was not allowed to admit to it!). This was very unfortunate for Julie Andrews, but in an unusual twist of fate, she made Mary Poppins that year, and, while My Fair Lady swept the top Oscars with the Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor awards, Miss Andrews won the Best Actress award over Miss Hepburn (who wasn't even nominated!)!

Condition: very good. Prior to linenbacking, the poster was in very good condition. There were many creases and small tears down the vertical foldlines and a lesser amount on the horizontal foldlines. There was a 6" diagonal tear in the middle of the poster slightly to the right of the center of the poster. Some of the middle of the left and middle of the right blank borders were somewhat tattered and new paper had been carefully laid over much of the left and right blank borders. Linenbacking has minimized the poster's defects, but they are still somewhat noticeable, although I do not think they are all that distracting.
