A striking Japanese B2 poster for the 1966 Audrey Hepburn Parisian heist comedy How To Steal A Million, featuring a beautiful close up portrait of Hepburn which almost fills the entire poster. In her third picture to be directed by William Wyler, Hepburn played the straight-laced daughter of an art forger who teams up with suave society burglar Peter O'Toole to steal her father's faux Cellini from a museum before it's discovered to be a fake. Hepburn and O'Toole had a ball teasing each other on set, particularly through an intimate eleven day shoot in a janitor's closet. Wyler grumbled They react on each other like laughing gas, and the trouble is they're in almost every scene together. Givenchy clothed Audrey in sixties perfection throughout. Some critics found the movie out of touch, but the frivolous glamour and witty dialogue gave audiences a welcome respite from the Vietnam war and generated a box office success.
Unfolded, not backed. A few light creases. Light undulation from being very softly tri-folded at one time. Image and colours excellent.
