Some Like It Hot

Lot #99 - Cinema Poster Live Auction - US One-Sheet, 1960

Stock #129022

The country of origin US One-Sheet offered here features a classic image of Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon for Billy Wilder's 1959 romantic musical cross-dressing drag crime comedy "Some Like it Hot" (1959). Due to the phenomenal success of the movie, there were two print runs (this example being from that second run). The copyright date in the bottom left is "1960" and not "1959", with the 1960 copyright having slightly smaller type than the 1959 ones. The words "All Rights Reserved" have been inserted to the left of "Country of Origin U.S.A.". In every other respect the two posters appear identical. Linen-backed (to a very high standard) in 1997, this has never been stored flat and never displayed making it one of the best examples to come to market for some time.

27" x 41" (69 x 104 cm)
