Vintage original 40 x 30" (100 x 75 cm.) poster, USA. Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten, Everett Sloane, Ruth Warrick, Dorothy Comingore, Paul Stewart, dir: Orson Welles; RKO. The towering yet unfulfilled expression of Charles Foster Kane hovers over the image of himself in his political campaign representing his climb to the top from his humble beginnings to a life of privilege, wealth and power. The industry and the Academy recognized the film for its artistry and innovation, but because of the political uproar it caused it won just one award: the much-deserved Oscar for Best Writing, Original Screenplay to Orson Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz. In 1956, some of those who inspired the story had passed and the film was recognized for its great contributions to the changing of film making. Unique poster presentation for this re-release. Poster is unfolded and displays some soiling in the white areas and stress and creases along the top border and some significant creasing to the top left margin edge. There is some noticeable creasing and scratching in the background of the credit box "Some called him a hero… others called him a heel." Some pin holes along the bottom blank white margin. VERY GOOD-FINE. Bookseller Inventory #
