Conservation linen-backed US One-Sheet poster for one of the most collectable of all Steve McQueen posters, "The Great Escape" (1963). The poster campaign artwork was by Frank McCarthy, who communicates the thrill of the escape with airmen fleeing in all directions, with the "barbed wire" background to the title script also being an effectively added touch.

27" x 41" (69 x 104 cm)

Condition: Very Good

Conservation linen-backed with light restoration. Fold lines have been touched in and flattened out and are almost undetectable. Overall this displays very well with light faded staining to the right edge of the linen NOT the poster.
