1953 Gentlemen Prefer Blondes One-Sheet Movie Poster
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $3,258.75
One-sheet movie poster issued for the 1953 Twentieth Century-Fox release Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. The colorful image features scantily clad images of the two leads, Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell, set against a Parisian background. Based on the 1949 Broadway musical of the same name, the film proved a hit with both critics and audiences alike, and ultimately finished as the sixth highest-grossing film of the year. Of course, casting two of Hollywood's greatest sex symbols, Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell, as the leads didn't hurt either. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes marked one of Monroe's most memorable performances and the one-sheet for the film has always been highly regarded by both Marilyn Monroe and movie poster collectors. The poster (27 x 41 inches) displays normal folds (as issued), along with possibly a tiny area of touch up at a fold intersection. In Excellent to Mint condition overall. Matted and framed to total dimensions of 31 x 46 inches. Reserve $300. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,258.75
