YOYO

Original French 47 inch x 63 inch Poster for the 1955 Pierre Etaix Comedy YOYO starring himself.

Yo Yo is the son of a 1920s billionaire who, although having everything he fancies and living in a cavernous old castle, is not happy, fancying the simple life of a beautiful circus actress. When the stock-exchange crashes, rendering him both poor and free. Thus, he joins the circus where his love interest is performing, and fall madly in love. They have a son who starts in the circus as a clown, but later becomes a successful actor star and uses his new wealth to buy back his father’s castle.

This elaborately conceived and brilliantly mounted comedy is Pierre Etaix’s most beloved movie, as well as his personal favorite. Beginning as a clever homage to silent film, complete with intertitles, Yoyo blossoms into a poignant family saga (in which Etaix plays both a father and his grown son) and a celebration of the circus Etaix adored.

The poster is in very good folded condition.
