Exquisite and massive Italian movie poster for Down to Earth, known there as Bellezze in Cielo, starring Rita Hayworth. The 40x55" one sheet poster on foam board features a smiling Hayworth next to herself as the Muse Terpsichore, whom she portrays in the film, which was released in 1947. Interestingly, and somewhat confusingly, the film was a sequel to the 1941 film Here Comes Mr. Jordan, which was remade in 2001 with the title Down to Earth. Hayworth was a massive star at the time, having just appeared in the 1946 film noir "Gilda" as the titular character - the role for which she is perhaps best known. The poster has the Columbia Pictures logo on the bottom right corner and "Ind. Graf. N. Moneta - Milano 1949" on the bottom left corner. Her co-stars can be found in red lettering above the title, naming Larry Parks, Adele Jergens, Marc Platt, Edward E. Horton and James Gleason as the other notables. The poster has been previously folded, but you can barely see the crease lines. It also has some holes and minuscule tears on its edges, but is otherwise EX, and the display quality is much higher. This is a terrific memento of old Hollywood with the bonus of being used for promotion in Italy.
