A guaranteed original one sheet movie poster from 1959 for Otto Preminger's romantic musical "Porgy and Bess", based on the opera by George and Ira Gershwin and the 1925 novel 'Porgy' by DuBose Heyward.

What a cast! Sidney Poitier, Dorothy Dandridge and Sammy Davis Jr star alongside Pearl Bailey and Brock Peters in a gritty tale of a crippled beggar and a drug addict.

No known quality print of this movie exists and it is now considered a 'holy grail of missing movies'. In 2011 it was included in the U.S. National Film Registry due to its "historic, cultural and aesthetic" significance.

This amazing movie poster was originally issued tri-folded (that is, folded twice horizontally, but not vertically) but has been stored flat for some time and so will be shipped rolled. As our photos show, it displays beautifully. A really special poster.

We only sell guaranteed original movie posters. We do not sell reproductions.

Note: This poster is priced unframed. Photos showing framed and 'in room' images are for illustration only. Please check our hi-res images and the sizing information shown above.
