If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: fair to good. This poster was framed for many years on Howard Brandy's wall. Over the years, the red of the title significantly faded, due to exposure to light. The masters at Studio C re-colored the title area, matching it perfectly to other examples of the poster, and I doubt anyone would have known that this had been done if they were not told (it is that well done!). At the same time Studio C re-colored the title, they also re-linenbacked the poster (it had been on old linen for many years. It had been in nice condition prior to backing, but there were smudges in the background areas, and Studio C expertly touched them up. The poster now looks really wonderful. I would think any collector would be happy to display it in their home!
