A PIECE OF CINEMA HISTORY
I have a cir 1961 THEATER LOBBY CARD from the METRO GOLDWYN MAYER movie THE 4 HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE. This movie starring GLEN FORD, INGRID THULIN and CHARLES BOYER was DIRECTED BY VINCETTE MINNELLI. The card is printed on card-stock and has a wonderful feel and coloring that you would never get with a reproduction or digital down load. Measuring 14 x 11 inches this piece is in VINTAGE EXCELLENT CONDITION with NO BENDS NO STAINS AND NO DAMAGE OF ANY KIND TO THIS PIECE
The horror of WWII seen through the eyes of the upper, upper class. The horror of WWII seen through the eyes of a romantic Argentinean caught up in Paris, wishing to look the other way but, through the love of a beautiful woman and the loss of his innocent sister to the Gestapo, must be forced to make a choice between ambivalence and his heart. His grandfather wanted to create a perfect world of love and peace on the pampas, but his heirs got sucked into Hitler's other dream of a perfect world, except for those who knew otherwise.
Damned by film critics when the film was released in the early 60's--Leonard Maltin refers to it as "glossy trash"--director Vincente Minelli goes over the top, maybe too much so, in making the film absolutely beautiful to watch. Antique dealers will salivate at the sets. Haute couture costumes by Orry-Kelly make you scream. And never has the old adage "clothes make the man" been more evident. Top all this off with excellent acting, a succinct script, and the most beautiful and effective musical score Andre Previn ever wrote, and you have a classic. review by Robert Hyde
This would look wonderful framed and would make a treasured gift for any vintage movie, WWII enthusiast
