Jean Cocteau’s romantic masterpiece has been wowing audiences for over 70 years. Part fairytale, part fantasy, La Belle et la Bete could have only been brought to the screen by Cocteau — who was a poet and playwright before becoming a director. It had astonishing effects, especially for the 1940s, that effortlessly transported the audience into his dream world. Today the film is universally celebrated as one of the most important films in French cinema.

The original release French posters are all simply stunning––from the A1-sized moyenne all the way up to the French double grands. This design from the 1-panel, however, is probably the most famous and sought after by collectors. The poster offered here is from the 1951 re-release, just five years after it first debuted. Luckily it keeps the same amazing design and lush stone litho printing as the first release, but it’s a much more affordable way to own one of the most beautiful posters ever designed.
