Listing Information
Original Austrian movie poster. This beautiful poster was designed by Victor Theodor Slama. On leaving school, Slama began an apprenticeship as a painter's draftsman, while simultaneously attending evening classes in art. By the 20's, he was established on the Vienna scene as a gifted painter and graphic designer. He worked in book and magazine illustration, and also designed film and exhibition posters, however his main employment was with the Austrian Social Democratic part. He designed several political posters. After the Second World War, Slama continued to have a successful career in commercial art until his death in the early 1970s . He designed and organised several exhibitions, including two international poster exhibitions in Vienna in 1948 and 1961.

The Austrian National Library holds 39 of his posters in their permanent collection. The film was remade in 1957 by Billy wilder as Love in the Afternoon. Due to the posters size it was printed in four panels and the only way it could have beed displayed would have been to past it up to a bill board.

This is the only example the gallery has seen of this poster in over 20 years.
