The Sound of Music
This poster has so much in its favour, and is one of the most popular titles that we offer.
The 1965 musical from Twentieth Century Fox was based on the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. It was not only one of the biggest grossing films of its year, but has remained popular ever since, with cinematic re-releases, video, DVD, Blu-Ray and streaming all introducing it to new audiences, as well as giving its original audience a chance to enjoy it yet again.
We think that the original UK Quad poster is a superior design to its US counterpart. Perhaps it’s the fact that the landscape format is better suited to the Herpning artwork illustrating the Austrian mountainside, but it’s simply one of those iconic timeless images which would happily adorn most walls, and is very likely to encourage anyone looking at it to start singing that The Hills are Alive……
Conservation linen backed. The poster was in great condition before backing, and we decided not to restore two very small areas of border edge paper loss, which are barely noticeable and will likely be completely covered when the poster is mounted and framed.
