If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that we have seen a version of this one-sheet that has a litho number and an NSS number in the bottom border, and this poster does not, so it would seem that this poster is surely either an international poster (used in a country like Canada where they did not use NSS information), or, it conceivably be a re-release (but if it is a re-release, it is quite nice printing, equal to that of the other version, and this poster is stamped "BLONDE BAIT 1SHEET" on the back. Please do not bid on this poster if you are looking for the version that has the NSS and litho information at the bottom!

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had some fine surface paper loss on parts of the folds, with slight darkening in the top fold and in the outer edges of hte blank borders. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The restorer backed the poster "in the European style", meaning that they did not do restoration to the defects described above.
