Artist: Reynold Brown
Important Added Info: Note that this is the very rare three-sheet for the original release of this movie, which was in "TODD-AO". Certainly, very few theaters showed this movie that way and it is likely that few posters were printed with the TODD-AO on it (it is directly below the end of the title), and likely very few survive (we have only had one TODD-AO one-sheet and one TODD-AO three-sheet in the past! Also note that this three-sheet was printed in 2 sections designed to overlap. Also note that the theater that used this poster glued the pieces together before putting them on display (this is typical of many actual theater-used posters in multiple pieces).

Condition: fair. The theater that used this poster glued the pieces together before putting them on display (this is typical of many actual theater-used posters in multiple pieces). The poster is fragile and there are separations, tears, and areas of paper loss on parts of many foldlines. The poster is mostly "all there", and after linenbacking by a talented professional, the poster will display well. Please do not bid on this poster unless you can accept its very significant defects and are willing to pay to have them properly restored!
