This is an earlier edition of this poster, bearing the printed signature of designer Guy Gerard Noël. Noël was one of the greats of French movie poster design, known for his bold use of line and color. This one makes particularly good use of metallic, gold-colored pigments. Note the floral detail on Boyer’s cuff.
“Madame De…,” by the way, is one of my all-time favorite movies.
