Kubrick’s venture into the world of period drama. Based on the Thackeray novel it starred Ryan O’Neal and Marissa Berenson as well as Patrick Magee, Leonard Rossiter, and Hardy Krüger.
It was criticised at the time for its rather leisurely pace, but with fabulous locations and ground breaking cinematography the film was a visual feast and won four Academy Awards. And nowadays it is recognised as one of his best.
Great artwork by Charles Gehm on this original release US one sheet movie poster.
