This is a 24" x 33" Belgian poster deslgned by M. Demil for a 1940
release of the 1939 Victor Fleming film Gone with the Wind
based on the book by Margaret Mitchell, screenplay by Sidney Howard
and starring Clark Gable as Rhett Butler. Some poster dealers and even
a couple of major auction houses are in the habit of claiming this
particular poster is a 1939 pre-war poster, but that is not possible
because the European premier for GWTW, while it did take place in
Brussels, did not occur until October 1947! The Motion Picture Herald
reported this on page 8 of its 27 September 1947 issue. Our poster
here is actually from the 1954 rerelease. We know this because of the
type face used for the printer tag at the bottom (not used until
1949). The blacked-out area in the lower right covers the name of the
old MGM distributor, which was not active in Belgium after 1952.
This item is available for immediate shipment. It is variously known to the public as a Gone with the Wind poster, a Gone with the Wind film poster and a Gone with the Wind movie poster.
