DESCRIPTION


From the CineMasterpieces archive.


This is a genuine 27" x 41" U.S. one sheet ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER issued by the studio when the film was released and meant for theatrical display.


Professionally Linen Backed by the finest restoration specialists in the world.


Prior to Linen Backing this poster was folded as issued.


These can be very difficult to find in any condition! A long time can go by without one of these coming up for sale. You will have trouble finding a nicer one.



CONDITION


C8-C9


EXCELLENT-NEAR MINT


LINEN BACKED


Very minimal typical fold line touch up. Looks beautiful! Well preserved.



A Linen Backed poster is a poster that is archivally mounted to acid-free paper and canvas where it can be restored if needed. Fold lines and other defects become less noticeable, sometimes even invisible. It can be rolled for shipping and is ready for framing. Linen Backing can dramatically improve the overall appearance of a poster and it can substantially increase its value. It is the preferred archival method for conserving and/or restoring a poster.


BEWARE OF REPRODUCTIONS

There are known reprints and / or reproductions of this poster.

This is NOT a reprint or reproduction poster! It is guaranteed to be a REAL ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER issued by the studio when the film was released and meant for theatrical display.

We are absolutely certain it is authentic.


Buy with confidence. We have been on since 1998.







Please read all of the information below before purchasing.

Please be advised that over 95% of all Original Movie Posters printed before the mid 1980's were issued FOLDED. This is NOT considered a defect. They were shipped to theaters this way. Vintage rolled posters do exist, however they are extremely rare. We can have any folded poster Linen Backed which will make the fold lines virtually disappear.

Also please note that most movie posters were actually used at the theater, and some will contain slight imperfections such as: writing on the back, pin holes, fold wear, small tears,etc. These are all very common and to be expected, but if they bother you, all these minor flaws can be remedied in the Linen Backing process. Linen Backing preserves and can actually increase the value of a poster. For the most part, any flaws will be fixed and the poster will appear to be in Near Mint condition. For more information about our Linen Backing service please message us through .

We do not always measure all of our posters exactly. Unless otherwise specified, poster measurements quoted above are approximate to the nearest inch. For example, if we say a one sheet poster is 27" x 41" its precise measurements may be closer to 26 3/4" x 40 7/8" (or something similar). This slight variance is quite common for all original movie posters.

BEWARE OF "FAKE" MOVIE POSTERS!

There are fakes, bootlegs, reprints, and reproductions of almost every popular movie poster. WE DO NOT SELL THESE AS ORIGINALS LIKE OTHERS DO! There are many unscrupulous dealers who successfully pass off these posters as originals. They have been doing it for years! These fakes are almost indistinguishable from originals, only experts can tell. Many who buy them don't know they have been taken. They only discover years later when they sell them that they are worthless. Most are from popular movies from the 70's and 80’s, but there are also really old ones and relatively new ones as well. They usually appear in insert size 14" x 36" and one sheet size 27" x 41". Again, all we can say is BEWARE!

GRADING & CONDITION

We grade our posters according to the Iguide Universal 10-Point Movie Poster Grading Scale. Almost all of our inventory is graded at least C8 Excellent or better.

C10 Mint- Investment quality. No perceptible flaws of any kind.
C9 Near Mint- Investment quality. Minor flaw on an otherwise unused poster.
C8 Excellent- Investment quality. A few minor defects. Pin holes, small tears, etc.
C7 Very Good to Excellent - Fine. Several defects. Still a very nicely preserved item.
C6 Very Good - The typical used poster in average condition. Several defects.
C5 Good to Very Good - A heavily-worn item.
C4 Good - Below average but still suitable for display.
C3 Fair - Heavily worn, but yet still complete.
C2 Poor to Fair - An extremely worn, possibly even incomplete item.
C1 Poor - The lowest grade, representing items in the lowest possible condition.

Some of our posters are "between grades". For example, a C8-C9 poster will contain all the qualities/characteristics of a Near Mint C9 except for one or two very minor flaws that we believe prevent it from being a true C9.

SHIPPING

NO EXTRA CHARGE FOR COMBINED SHIPPING

It is usually possible to ship folded and rolled posters together in one package by rolling the folded ones and shipping them all in one tube. Sometimes it isn't possible to do this. Sometimes we can't roll a folded poster. If this is the case then we must split your wins/purchases into two separate packages and you will be charged for a second shipment.

All wins/purchases must be paid for within 7 days.

We offer either USPS Express or Priority Mail Shipping.

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND USPS EXPRESS MAIL FOR SHIPMENTS OUTSIDE THE U.S.A.

BULLETPROOF PACKAGING

We only use the strongest packaging materials available. We guarantee your purchase will arrive safely and undamaged.

Folded posters are placed in a plastic bag betweenSTRONG pieces of cardboard and then in a shipping box. Rolled posters are put into a plastic sleeve and then placed in a HEAVY-DUTY thick walled 3" or 4" diameter plastic tube. We roll the poster into a smaller diameter than the tube. This is VERY IMPORTANT because it gives the edges strength and helps to prevent them from getting wrinkled. We add soft cushioning material on the ends to prevent them from getting damaged. We stamp “FRAGILE: DO NOT BEND” on theoutside of the package.

NON U.S. CUSTOMERS

WE WILL NO LONGER SHIPFIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL AIRMAIL WITHOUT INSURANCE

Our experience has shown that packages shipped this way can easily get lost and/or sometimes take several weeks to arrive.

RETURN POLICY

We have an open and easy return policy so you can buy from us with confidence. In the unlikely event you are unhappy with your purchase, please notify us immediately. You may return an item for any reason within 30 days of receiving it for a full refund. You must notify us before sending it back. Item must be in the same condition as originally sent to you and returned to us with our bulletproof packaging materials or return policy does not apply.

If you buy a non linen backed poster and choose to have us linen back it for you, the poster is not returnable for a refund. It is however returnable for FULL CREDIT towards the purchase of other posters from us.
