Manhattan (1979) Poster, US, Signed by Mariel Hemingway

Unframed: 41 x 27 in. (104 x 69 cm)


Mr. Sohal met Mariel Hemingway at the Trafalgar Studios in London, where she was starring in the play Fiesta: The Sun Also Rises.

It is rare for anyone to have an original poster signed, as the majority of signatures are on pieces of paper, photographs, and video/DVD sleeves.

This romantic comedy was directed by Woody Allen and written by Allen and Marshall Brickman. Allen stars in the film, together with Dianne Keaton, Michael Murphy, Mariel Hemingway, Meryl Streep, and Anne Byrne. Allen plays a twice-divorced comedy writer, who dates a young girl and then falls in love with the mistress of his best friend. All very complicated. The film was shot in black-and-white and features music by George Gershwin, including Rhapsody in Blue.
