Las doce sillas

Acquisition Number: 2011-096
Translation: The Twelve Chairs

There are three films called “Las doce sillas” or “Twelve chairs”, all based on the same 1928 satirical Soviet novel, The Twelve Chairs by Ilf and Petrov. The U.S. version was directed by Mel Brooks, and came out in 1970. There is a 1971 Soviet version directed by Leonid Gaidai, and a1999 version directed by Tomas Alea,the same year the poster was made. As the ICAIC poster doesn’t give the names of any director or actors—which is very unusual for ICAIC posters— it could refer to any of the films, but was made for the Alea version.
