Lawrence of Arabia (advance) Price: £600 | Size: French - 22"x16" | Grade: Fine on linen | Year: 1962 This is the rare advance from the first release in France of David Lean's classic. Notably, this is the only poster to feature the now iconic long distance shot of Omar Sharif approaching the well. N.B. The poster harks back to the success of Bridge on the River Kwai in order to generate interest in the new release. Later posters had no such need. Currently framed, this poster is linen backed and will be sent out rolled unless the buyer would like the frame as well. It has minor airbrushing to the lower edge which has resulted in the loss of a few letters of the very fine print in the lower left corner so 'Cinemato' now reads 'mato'. This is all very minor, though, and the poster looks stunning.
