Catherine

Paris: Libra Films, 1969. Vintage Moyenne (medium) poster for the 1969 French-German-Italian film.

Based on Juliette Benzoni's 1963 novel, "Il suffit d'un amour," the first of her "Catherine" series. Set in the Middle Ages, Catherine (Georges-Picot) is a Joan of Arc-style heroine.

Director Borderie wanted the "Catherine" film to mark a new series of historic heroine films, like his previous "Angelique" films (1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968), but the project never fully developed. Actress Georges-Picot jumped to her death in 1997.

22.5 x 30 inches (57 x 76 cm), twice folded. Very Good plus, with edge creases and short tears, and a tiny tear to the center.
