“In my country, we have a name for a warrior with the vision to be just and the courage to show mercy. We call him… the CID !”

“EL CID” is one of Charlton Heston’s best loved roles and a movie rightly considered as a very popular classic of the historical action genre, which makes this UK quad film poster a marvellous find as any paper from the the initial 1961 release is genuinely scarce and rarely comes to market. The Cid (Heston) and his queen (Sophia Loren) are beautifully rendered alongside an epic battle scene as Spaniards take on the Moors. Truly magnificent artwork that has been perfectly designed to suit the landscape format of the British UK quad film poster. The impressive unrestored original UK quad movie poster  for “EL CID” offered here is from first year of release 1961 and displays & presents to excellent effect. This superb originally folded (as issued) example has very minimal handling & age wear with deep, vibrant colours. A very collectible piece of desirable original movie memorabilia that is rarely seen offered for sale.
