NSS# 61/343. eArtFilm movie posters.
A rare, original 1961, folded theatrical release one sheet measuring 27"x41" that is in fair to good condition. There are pinholes, tears, and fold line separation as shown in the pics. Jagged edges along the bottom. Our watermark is on the image only and not the poster.
Note: This poster is the first release one-sheet from before the movie won the Best Picture Academy Award. After the Academy Awards, snipes were added to the top left area. Other posters were printed that look the same but they have Academy Award information and a 1962 copyright date printed on them. This first release one-sheet is far more hard to find than the post-Academy Awards one-sheets with the snipe.
