Buenos Aires: Argentina Sono Film, 1951. Original British quad poster for the 1951 film. Based on Richard Wright's 1940 novel. Rare.
A striking illustrated poster, evoking the story's desperation and heat at a glance. In a move that placed him in a category with Mickey Spillane, Richard Wright accepted an offer to star as leading man in a film based on his own novel after initial choice Canada Lee, who had starred in Orson Welles' stage adaptation, was stuck in South African customs after shooting "Cry the Beloved Country."
Set in Chicago, and shot on location in Chicago and Argentina.
30 x 40 inches. Linen backed and rolled.
