67. CARMEN JONES (1954)
Stockholm: 20th Century Fox, [1954]. Vintage original 39 x 27” (99 x 69 cm.) Swedish poster. Conserved on archival linen, with routine touch-ups to address minor tears and chipping, near fine.
Dorothy Dandridge’s greatest and most iconic role.This Swedish poster, with a design entirely different from its U.S. equivalent, has a large image of her, hands on hips and broadly smiling, alongside designer Saul Bass’ image of the flaming red rose (which occurs in the film’s credits). It is fascinating to notice how Dandridge was being taken note of in overseas distribution of her films.
