Let's Make Love Poster

Chantrell produced some fantastic poster images of Marilyn Monroe: "Bus Stop" (1956) & "Goodbye Norma Jean" (1976) being two prime examples. The Chantrell illustration for "Let's Make Love" (1960), however, arguably provides one of the finest depictions of this 20th century icon. Behind the central image of Marilyn, Chantrell provides further portraits of the star, the pink toned background providing a fitting & sympathetic background. This is surely one of the best (& most collectable) Marilyn Monroe Quad posters available.


Released in 1960, "Let's Make Love" was a romantic comedy musical which perfectly show-cased Marilyn Monroe's charm & talents. Not only was Marilyn given top-billing (this abundantly apparent from the design of the poster) but she dominated the film with her star presence. Inspite of the light-heated nature of the film, it was well received by the critics & indeed was nominated at the Oscars, Golden Globe & by BAFTA.


This is a rare poster & difficult to find in any condition. This example, however, is particularly rare, it having escaped normal machine-folding & being in totally original un-restored condition. The poster has a single faint vertical fold-line to the centre. Otherwise there is very slight surface paper loss to the white rim corner area, several tiny edge nicks, a single tape mark to upper rim & a tiny hole (3mm diameter) to the upper mid pink background. These are all superficial issues & overall the poster remains in excellent condition. The colours remain bold & vibrant & the poster will frame & display to stunning effect. A fantastic piece of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia & one of the most collectable Chantrell Quads.
