1961, Paramount, U.S. double-sided advance one-sheet with German titles -- 41x27in. (104x69cm.), (A-)
Art by Robert McGinnis
This style of poster is thought to be the advance, printed in the U.S. with a blank space at the bottom. They were then sent to those countries where the film was to be released and where an advance campaign was thought desirable. The titles and credits were then added as appropriate.
This poster, thought to be the only example to have surfaced from Germany, is identical in all but the titles to the U.S. poster sold through these rooms in March 2004 for £13,145
