A PIECE OF CINEMA HISTORY
I have a cir 1964 THEATER LOBBY CARD from the COLUMBIA PICTURES movie BEHOLD A PALE HORSE. This movie starring GREGORY PECK, ANTHONY QUINN, OMAR SHARIF was DIRECTED BY FRED ZIMMERMAN. 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- NO BENDS - NO STAINS AND NO DAMAGE OF ANY KIND TO THIS PIECE
The film is based on the novel Killing a Mouse on Sunday by Emeric Pressburger, which loosely details the life of the Spanish anarchist guerrilla, Francisco Sabaté Llopart
With a budget of $3.9 million, the production hit a snag when the Franco government refused permission to film in Spain. The production resorted to filming exterior shots across the border in France and , as well as Studio St. Maurice in Vincennes.
Originally, Anthony Quinn had requested the role of Artiquez, but Zinnemann felt it would be type-casting him, and gave him the opposing role of the villain Viñolas. Several Spanish refugees were used to play the parts of Civil officers
Filming began on June 13, 1963, and continued for a little over 100 days, running nearly a month over schedule. After Columbia previewed the film for US audiences, they decided that an intro was needed to provide background relating to the Spanish Civil War, so clips from the documentary about the war To Die in Madrid were interspersed with dialogue explaining the conflict.
This would look wonderful framed and would make a treasured gift for any vintage movie or History enthusiast
