RARE Belgian Original 1st Release Movie Poster - Cobra Woman (1944), Maria Montez, Jon Hall, Sabu, Edgar Barrier, Mary Nash, Lon Chaney Jr. Robert Siodmak, Technicolor, South Seas Adventure, Romance, Snakes, Sarong. Here is a rare original Belgian movie poster from the 1st release of Robert Siodmak's technicolor production set in the south sea islands, Cobra Woman. Starring the exotic Maria Montez as a tropic island princess who is recruited by her grandmother Queen to displace her evil twin sister, this movie also featured frequent Dorothy Lamour co-star Jon Hall.Avant-garde filmmaker Kenneth Anger called this his favorite film. This poster is from the first release of the movie in Belgium in 1947, shortly after the end of the war in Europe. It features beautiful artwork that is unique to this Belgian release poster. Although there are condition issues, this poster displays very well as is but would benefit from linenbacking and perhaps some minor restoration. Another prime example of outstanding Belgian movie poster art. DESCRIPTION: Cobra Woman (1944), Universal-International, Directed by Robert Siodmak. COUNTRY OF ORIGIN / SIZE: Belgium 16.5" x 25".
