Last Tango In Paris Poster Original Daybill 1972 Marlon Brando
Daybill Poster.Last Tango in Paris (Italian: Ultimo tango a Parigi; French: Le Dernier Tango à Paris) is a 1972 erotic drama film directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, which portrays a recently widowed American who begins an anonymous sexual relationship with a young Parisian woman. It stars Marlon Brando, Maria Schneider, and Jean-Pierre Léaud. As was his practice in previous films, Brando refused to memorise his lines for many of the scenes. In-stead he wrote his lines on cue cards and posted them around the set. For one scene in this film,Brando even asked Bertolucci if he could "write lines on Maria's rear end", which the director rejected. The film premiered at the New York Film Festival on October 14, 1972, and grossed $36 million in its U.S. theatrical release, the seventh highest-grossing film of 1973. The film's raw portrayal of sexual violence and emotional turmoil led to international controversy and drew various levels of government censorship in different jurisdictions. Upon release in the United States, the MPAA gave the film an X rating. In 1997, after the film became part of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer library, the film was reclassified NC-17.
