Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists, 1955. Vintage US insert poster for the 1955 re-release of the 1951 film.
Welles' film version of "Othello" began filming in 1949 but, due to the director's typical difficulties with financing, was not completed for another three years. Despite the troubled production, the resulting film stands among the finest Shakespearean adaptations, winning the Palme d'Or at the 1952 Cannes Film Festival.
Shot on location in Morocco and Italy.
14 x 36 inches (36 x 91 cm). Very Good plus, with light toning overall, soiling to the verso, and two small bruises to the recto. Tape affixed to the verso, bearing the holograph notation, "55-363."
