(TCF, 1954) An original opening title sequence background painting from the CinemaScope period epic, The Egyptian. Accomplished in gouache on board, the painting is designed to appear as if painted on a brick wall, and depicts a charioteer and combat scene with hieroglyphic captions in the style of Ancient Egyptian art. This background appears in two shots of the opening title sequence, one with Darryl Zanuck's producer credit and the other with Michael Curtiz's director's credit. Measuring 23.25"x46.25" within a 27.25"x49.75" frame, the artwork is in good condition with some water staining at left and in the lower quarter of the piece, as well as scattered scratches and scuffs.
