This is a guaranteed original movie poster. This is not a REPRINT or a REPRODUCTION.
Stephen Spielberg asked the legendary Saul Bass (who was 73 at the time) to submit a poster design for Schindler's List. Ultimately, it would be the subdued work of artist Tom Martin that would be chosen for the film's release. Martin's muted but effective image had a hand reaching down and holding a child's hand, with the typed "List" superimposed over them. Bass delivered a more raw, dramatic take on the subject: a torn remnant of "The List" impaled on a barbed wire spike, surely in symbolism of the names Schindler couldn't save, and the unspeakable fate that would befall them. It's a fascinating contrast of ideas in terms of promoting a blockbuster Hollywood epic, but luckily a few of this limited run of posters survived, most going only to industry insiders, as the Bass posters were never released to any theatre. It's believed that only 200 were printed, and that this was the last film poster Bass created.
