An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (measures 27" x 41") (Learn More)

Cat People, the classic 1942 Jacques Tourneur human-feline romantic horror thriller ("She was one of the dreaded 'Cat People' -- doomed to slink and prowl and court by night... fearing always that a lover's kiss might change her into a snarling, clawing KILLER!"; "She was marked with the curse of those who slink and court and kill by night!"; "A kiss could change her into a monstrous fang-and-claw killer!"; "To kiss her meant death by her own fangs and claws!"; "Beautiful, warm, glamorous by day, she dared not love - for her kisses might change to snarls, her embraces to the death grips of the awful 'Cat People' who stalk and strike by night! . . . THE STRANGEST STORY YOU EVER TRIED TO GET OUT OF YOUR DREAMS!"; "Written by DeWitt Bodeen"; produced by Val Lewton) starring Simone Simon, Kent Smith, Tom Conway, Jane Randolph, and Jack Holt

Condition: very good to fine. This poster was linenbacked, and it had very minor defects, and was well backed. Read below for a description of those defects, and about the quality of the restoration (if I found anything worth commenting on!). You should also look at our "super-sized" image of the actual poster (we are the only major auction company we know of that gives accurate detailed pre-restoration information about linenbacked posters to our bidders, but we wish everyone did!).

the poster had tiny paper loss at each crossfold and some small tears down the vertical foldline; there were pinholes in the corners and small paper loss at the ends of the horizontal foldlines. The poster was extremely well linenbacked, and the above basically minor defects were very nicely corrected, and this rare and wonderful poster looks fantastic!
