Samson and Delilah, the classic 1949 Cecil B. DeMille Biblical religious sword-and-sandal doomed romance adventure epic ("The staggering story of strength... And seduction... Of the mightiest mortal who ever lived!"; "Based upon the history of Samson & Delilah in the Holy Bible, Judges 13-16; The greatest love story since the beginning of man... and woman!"; "Cecil B. DeMille's Masterpiece") starring Hedy Lamarr (in the title role as Delilah), Victor Mature (in the title role as Samson), George Sanders (as The Saran of Gaza), Angela Lansbury (as Semadar), Henry Wilcoxon, and "a Cast of Thousands" (usually this is a major overstatement, but in the case of this movie, it is surely accurate!)

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this is an extremely rare poster. We have never auctioned one in all our years of auctioning! Note also that this poster is glued on to a thick cardboard backing so it will need to be sent in a very large flat package that measures approximately 24" x 30" so bear this added expense in mind before bidding.

Condition: good to very good. The poster was glued on to cardboard (see above) and it has a few creases scattered in various areas (see our image). It is otherwise in generally nice condition.
