NO WAY OUT (1950) TITLE LOBBY CARD SAUL BASS SIDNEY POITIERS 1. 11 x 14 28 x 35 cm. Richard Widmark, Linda Darnell, Stephen McNally, Sidney Poitier, dir: Joseph L. Brilliant Academy Award nominated screenplay (by director Mankiewicz) which dealt with racism and bigotry. The film was shocking and controversial when released for its subject matter and perhaps more so today but for the reasons of its political incorrectness.
It is an important document of where Americans were in 1950 and how far things have come in the years since. This is one of the most dynamic pieces of poster art ever created. The campaign was known to feature some of the very earliest of Saul Basss art. The lay out for this piece of art is attributed to Paul Rand, with Saul Bass perhaps involved in the title treatment.
