Approx 28x36 inch poster from the movie 'The Longest Day' with pen pictures of each cast member along the top and bottom, signed by the late RICHARD TODD (1919-2009) underneath his photo on the poster.
Signed by him several years ago during one of several exclusive signings we held at his home and then put away and forgotten until I found it in a tube behind a filing cabinet!
Todd played Major John Howard in the film and he told me he was originally asked by Darryl F Zanuck to play himself as he was a veteran of the Pegasus Bridge operation on D-Day the 6th June 1944, which (due to his modesty) he was very reluctant to do. After some too-ing and fro-ing between the pair, he eventually agreed to play Howard.
Due to our close working relationship with Mr Todd, we were also responsible for him appearing at several events such as Autographica and Memorabilia at the NEC.
Please note: This is NOT an original poster, it is a reproduction, printed on high quality glossy paper. The bright mark on the image is from the flash as I took the photo and does not appear on the item you will receive.
This will come packaged in a tube
