The Purple Rose of Cairo

Beverly Hills, CA: Orion Pictures, 1985. Vintage French mini poster for the 1985 US film. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Writing.

A delightfully crafted depression-era fantasy in which an unhappy wife indulges her knack for escapism through persistently visiting the cinema. Eventually, a handsome character in one of the films she frequents breaks the fourth wall, and what ensues is an unusual and fantastical romantic comedy. Shirking his usual self-deprecating style, Woody Allen describes the 1985 film as one of only a few in which the results closely match his original intentions.

Set in New Jersey, shot on location.

15.5 x 20.5 inches (39 x 52 cm). Light holograph pencil notation to the verso, else Near Fine.
