“The real Hollywood ! Private authentic films of the stars. Unbelievable !”
An uncommon Japanese B2 movie poster from the 1973 (first year of release in Japan) release of Michael Benveniste & Bill Osco sexploitation documentary “Hollywood Blue”. This scarce original film poster is dominated by a scarce semi naked photographic image of Marilyn Monroe from her last film, the unfinished ‘Something’s Got to Give’ and it is this image that makes the poster so collectible as it was only issued in this style in Japan. Beautiful to look at with lovely colours, this really is one of the best foreign Monroe posters you will find with the timeless star looking stunning; an image you are absolutely drawn too. Originally flat/unfolded (as issued) and presented in excellent unrestored condition this original movie memorabilia represents a highly desirable example from Marilyn Monroe’s (all to brief) cinematic career.
