Artist: Philip Castle
Important Added Info: Note that there are two different styles of this foil advance, one horizontal and one vertical. Both posters have artwork by Philip Castle, but the art is laid out differently on each poster, and there is a different border design to each poster. Also, the horizontal one is printed on a heavy stock with a glossy foil-like printing. One collector tells us that he attended a trade show where Universal Studios was exhibiting, and they gave out samples of the horizontal poster, but we don't know if they were also sent to theaters. If anyone knows more about this, please e-mail us and we will post it here.

Condition: very good. The poster was never folded. It has a diagonal crease in the bottom right blank corner and some very minor border wear. It has some creases and scuffs in the solid black areas, and a very few in the title and image area (see our image).
