(20th Century Fox, 1950s) An original "The End" hand-painted artwork on glass that was used for 20th Century-Fox films shot in CinemaScope. Fox was the earliest adopter of the CinemaScope wide-screen format. The period epic The Robe and the Marilyn Monroe comedy How to Marry a Millionaire were among the first CinemaScope productions to hit theaters, both showcasing the incredible potential of the process. The once boundary-breaking technology fell into decline in the 1960s as more flexible and less expensive anamorphic processes were developed. Fox shot its last CinemaScope films, In Like Flint and Caprice, in 1967. The artwork has a display size of 17”x27.5” visible through its 23.75”x34” frame. The hand-painted title is in good condition, with some flaking and chipping of the paint from age, that does not affect its legibility or wonderful display.
