How To Steal A Million

A charming French Petite for the 1966 Audrey Hepburn Parisian heist comedy How To Steal A Million. 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.

Excellent (A-)
Backed on linen. Prior to the backing, this poster had one vertical and two horizontal fold lines with minor surface wear to fold lines. Backing and light color touching has smoothed and diminished the folds ensuring the poster looks spectacular for display. Image and colors excellent.
