In stock


Poster Type

Original, vintage, 1959 professionally restored and linen backed Italian Locandina poster (measures 12.5" x 24.5" / 32cm x 62cm + linen border).

Overall Condition Grade & Details

Good to Very Good. This poster had extensive water damage and was professionally cleaned and restored. There was some touch-up work to the black areas (Marilyn's swimsuit) and the left blue border area (this can be seen in the photo above where the blue overpainting does not quite match.) There is a small white/pink mark of 1cm on Jack Lemmon's face. A few smudges and stains from the previous water damage are visible in the white border area. These flaws are not very noticeable at all and the restorer did a fantastic job rescuing a great poster and it now displays very well. PLEASE NOTE: This poster is for sale already framed but can be sold separately from the frame if required.




Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, George Raft, Joe. E. Brown

Tagline & Notes

Poster Artist: G. Olivetti. 'The movie too HOT for words!..Marilyn Monroe and her bosom companions.'.The beautiful art on this poster is by far the best available on this title and is far superior to the original US poster art. Billy Wilder's enduring comedy classic is one of the smartest, funniest movies ever made, with Monroe, Lemmon and Curtis all on top form, only to be upstaged by Joe. E. Brown's classic last line.
