THE KING AND I, Original Rodgers and Hammerstein Musical Movie poster

KING AND I, 1956. Original 1 Sheet (27″ x 41″) folded movie poster starring Yul Brynner, Deborah Kerr and Rita Moreno. This lavish Rodgers and Hammerstein musical was directed by Walter Lang and quickly became a classic of the musical genre because of the memorable tunes as much as for Brynner performance. Earning 5 Oscars this poster is the hard to find original 1956 version NOT a sub-sequent re-release.

This poster is one of several posters we have recently acquired from the Roxy Theater Discovery in Clarkfield, MN. We acquired these posters from a Gentleman who was working with the  City Public Works Department. The county had him and other workers tear down the theater and in the process several posters were discovered in a dumpster! The story of the theater is that it closed in 1967 and since the 60s the theater went into disrepair and eventually went back to the county for taxes. The county not realizing what they had, threw the posters in a dumpster, where this movie poster hero promptly recovered them.

Poster shows wear along the margins and thinning near the top fold line. Pinholes and wear in each corner. We have linen backed this poster which is now ready for framing.

Condition is C7. linen backed Sold For $650.
