A 1946 Re-Release Theatrical Linenbacked French One-Panel "Grande" Movie Poster (1p; measures 47" x 63 1/2" [119 x 161 cm]) (Learn More)

Zero de Conduite: Jeunes Diables au College (released in the U.S. as "Zero For Conduct"), the classic 1933 Jean Vigo French boarding school juvenile delinquent comedy short starring Jean Daste, Robert le Flon, Delphin, and Du Verron, and Leon Larive. Note that this classic movie opened in Paris in 1933, and it shocked and outraged many critics and film goers, and it was immediately banned! It was not shown again in France until 1946, when it was rediscovered by critics, and of course, it came to be considered a classic, and it is clear that it greatly inspired both Francois Truffaut's "The 400 Blows" and Lindsay Anderson's "If..." (and to be fair, its most famous scene, with a wild pillow fight, clearly itself found inspiration in Abel Gance's "Napoleon"!). We do not know if any posters exist from the 1933 showing. There are French one-panel posters from 1946, and there are also many reproductions and much later re-releases of the 1946 poster. If anyone knows more about this movie or this poster, please e-mail us and we will post it here.

Important Added Info: Note that this poster has been heavily reproduced (see above). This absolutely is the original 1946 re-release poster for this classic movie! Also note that this is a "country of origin" poster for this French movie!

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Note that this poster ships in a very long tube (at least 33" long, but possibly 50" long or more). Therefore the shipping for this poster will be more than that for a poster that ships in a tube 32" or shorter, and possibly much more. Please bear this added shipping expense in mind before bidding on this poster. You can tell how long of a tube this poster needs to ship in by looking at the shorter dimension of its length and width and then adding 4" to that (so a 47" x 63" poster will need to ship in a 51" long tube).

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good. The poster had paper loss at most crossfolds, with paper loss in the left of the top horizontal fold, below the title, entering into the man's cap. There were tears, darkening, and varying amounts of paper loss on the other folds. Overall, the poster was in good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can clearly see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects.
