The Man with the Golden Arm

$17,544.63

About

Original US Film poster Otto Preminger's The Man with the Golden Arm, 1955. When it comes to graphic artists, the name Saul Bass is as big as they come. In the 1950s, however, when Bass was already well into his career, his name did not yet hold the sway it does today; unable to comprehend how one could fail to feature the main stars, Frank Sinatra and Kim Novak, on the poster, the studio insisted that he incorporate them into the design for the one sheet, which would be mainly used to advertise the film. On this larger billboard poster Bass was allowed to keep his original version. At the premiere of the film a 9 foot installation of the stylised jagged arm that Bass created was on display. This poster is conservation linen backed and would be shipped rolled in a strong tube by Federal Express.
