Original Vintage Theatrical Folded Insert Movie Poster (measures 14" x 36") (Learn More)

Darryl F. Zanuck's Island in the Sun, the 1957 Robert Rossen Caribbean interracial romance romantic tropical island melodrama ("The people, the events of the international best-seller are on the screen!"; "The place is the West Indies... where the sun hides many things!"; produced by Darryl F. Zanuck; with screenplay by Alfred Hayes; based on the novel by Alec Waugh) starring James Mason, Joan Fontaine, Dorothy Dandridge, Joan Collins, Michael Rennie, Harry Belafonte ("as Boyeur"; the singer in his third movie role!), Diana Wynyard, John Williams, Stephen Boyd, Basil Sydney, and Patricia Owens. Note that this movie contained an interracial kiss, which sadly caused quite a stir (a decade later, a similar kiss between William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols was still causing controversy, a sad commentary on America's view toward race relations in the 1950s and 1960s).

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this poster was folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube.

Condition: very good. There are minor creases in the poster but more so in the foldlines and around the edges that aren't very distracting. There are smudges in the borders and in the top blank background. There are several small tears around the edges of the poster.
