An Original Vintage Theatrical Paperbacked Italian Locandina Movie Poster (measures 13 1/4" x 28" [34 x 71 cm]) (Learn More)

The Apartment, the 1960 Billy Wilder (winner of the Best Director Academy Award for this film) romantic melodrama ("Movie-wise, there has never been anything like 'The Apartment' love-wise, laugh-wise or otherwise-wise!"; "Written by Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond"; "A Billy 'Some Like It Hot' Wilder production"; winner of the Best Picture Academy Award; a surprisingly downbeat movie about a young unmarried executive at a company who starts rising up when he starts letting married executives use his apartment for extra-marital affairs) starring Jack Lemmon (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film), Shirley MacLaine (nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award for this film), Fred MacMurray, Ray Walston, Edie Adams (as Miss Olsen), Naomi Stevens, Hope Holiday, and Jack Kruschen (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; as Dr. Dreyfuss). This was also the last black & white movie to win the Academy Award until "Schindler's List" in 1993, followed by "The Artist" in 2011!

Artist: Carlantonio Longi
Important Added Info: Note that this poster has been paperbacked. Note that because this poster was paperbacked onto a thicker paper backing, it CAN'T be sent rolled (someone could conceivably roll it or try to do so, but we think it would almost certainly damage it, so we will only send it in a large flat package, unless the buyer insists, and then they would be responsible for any damage).

Note that it is difficult to accurately date Italian posters, and some unmarked re-release posters can be extremely difficult to distinguish from first releases, so please bear that in mind before you place a bid. We used our best information to date this poster, but we can't always guarantee that the Italian posters we sell are not from an unmarked re-release, but this will only prove to be true in a very tiny number of cases. What IS paperbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. Prior to paperbacking, the poster had been folded across the middle and had minor wear on that fold. It had uneven coloring down the left edge in the background (typical of locandinas of this period). Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to paperbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
