125 RUE MONTMARTRE
Original French 47 inch x 63 inch Poster for the 1959 Gilles Grangier Crime Drama 125 RUE MONTMARTRE, based on the novel by André Gillois and starring Lino Ventura, Andréa Parisy, Robert Hirsch, Dora Doll and Jean Desailly.
Lino Ventura is Pascal, a tough-minded, caustic, almost wholly unsympathetic newspaper vendor. Pascal is caught up in the action when a man tries to drown himself, and without realizing it he soon becomes a pawn in a plot that the failed suicide is hatching. Fate lurks in the background as a murder is committed and Pascal tries to get himself out of more than one predicament.
Poster art by Yves Thos. A French poster designer born in 1935 in Clichy.
The poster is in very good folded condition.
