CARMEN JONES (1954) Swedish Poster



Stockholm: 20th Century Fox, [1954]. Vintage original 39 x 27” (99 x 69 cm.) poster, Sweden. Conserved on archival linen, with routine touch ups to address minor tears and chipping, near fine.   Dorothy Dandridge, Harry Belafonte, dir: Otto Preminger; 20th Century Fox.

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 Saul Bass’ image of the flaming red rose (which occurs in the film’s credits).
