No Way Out, the 1950 Joseph L. Mankiewicz race relations crime film noir ("Is it a question... Or an answer"; "an entertainment with a great courageous theme reaching to new heights of screen dynamics with seven new conceptions of dramatic portrayal"; "Don't miss it!"; "All colored cast"; produced by Darryl F. Zanuck and Written by Joseph L. Mankiewicz & Lesser Samuels) starring Richard Widmark, Linda Darnell, Stephen McNally, Sidney Poitier (in his first major film), Mildred Joanne Smith (in her only movie appearance, as Poitier's wife), Harry Bellaver, Stanley Ridges, Dots Johnson, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Francine Everett, Frederick O'Neal, and Davis Roberts

Artist: Saul Bass
Important Added Info: Note that this poster is the only one that Saul Bass created for the No Way Out advertising campaign (apart from a trade ad). Erik Nitsche designed several posters for this movie, the one-sheet and 24-sheet was designed by Paul Rand, but this insert is the only poster from this title that has Saul Bass art. One unifying image from the advertising campaign is the provocative handcuffs/bed image (first suggested by Bass) which he, Rand and Nitsche all used in their designs.

Condition: good to very good. The poster has 3 additional uneven horizontal creases in addition to the regular 3 horizontal folds. All have extra creases along the foldlines. There are many small tears and creases around the edges of the poster and a few scuffs within the solid black areas of the image. I would think a talented restorer could back this poster and greatly minimize the creases and other minor defects, so that the poster would look great!
