The Sting (1973) US alternative one-sheet
George Roy Hill directs Robert Redford and Paul Newman as con artists who team up to avenge the death of a mutual friend killed by the mob, their mark being the all powerful Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). An intriguing tale of the 1930s Chicago underworld, no one is to be trusted, and as the plot unfolds, the movie's many twists and turns lead to what many consider to be the greatest film double-cross of all time. With the most memorable screen duo of Newman/Redford, and an incredible ensemble cast of colorful characters, the film was rewarded with seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Director and Screenplay. This very rare international one sheet, done in the stylish Art Deco look that was so popular during the 1930s, showcases the stars with incredibly stylish simplicity. In very good condition with several creases. Minor edge and corner wear. One 2 cm tear directly in the middle of the top edge and small area of surface paper loss to the back - found towards the lower left corner. The poster would look EX-NM if professionally linen-backed.
