Saul Bass' beautiful artwork for Saint Joan looks especially good on the UK Quad. The 1957 film directed by Otto Preminger and starring Jean Seberg as the titular Joan of Arc, alongside Richard Widmark, John Gielgud and Richard Todd, was adapted from the George Bernard Shaw play by Graham Greene. With Saul Bass as the designer of the poster – the list of collaborators could hardly be any more impressive.
Extremely rare, the only copy we have ever come across before. Professionally cleaned, de-acidified and linen-backed.
Actual poster size is 30 x 40 inches (31 x 41 including linen-backing).
