An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Insert Movie Poster (measures 14" x 36" [36 x 91 cm]) (Learn More)

Some Like It Hot, the classic 1959 Billy Wilder (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award for this film) romantic musical cross-dressing drag crime comedy ("Hot!!!"; about two out of work musicians who happen to witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago, and they need to leave town in a hurry, but the only jobs they can get is with an all-girl band, and they dress in drag, and one of the band members is Marilyn Monroe!) starring Marilyn Monroe ("and her bosom companions"), Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film), George Raft, Pat O'Brien, and Joe E. Brown (the great star of 1920s and 1930s slapstick comedy, who practically steals this movie with a wonderful comic performance and an unforgettable final line!)

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that there is an oddity with this insert from this classic movie. For unknown reasons, it was created in two versions, one with a solid white background and one with a solid light yellow background, with slightly different placement of the central image and the credits. It is possible that one was printed first, and then someone in the studio thought it could be improved, so they had it changed, but if so, no one knows which one came first! There are fewer of the white style ones, if people care about rarity.

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster had stains and tears in the top blank area, with some tears and tiny paper loss in the upper right border. It also had an extra horizontal fold with some creases 2" below the regular top horizontal fold, and a partial extra fold below the middle fold. Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster must have been displayed in a frame, because the edges of the blank borders have darkened unevenly from the rest of the poster. In spite of these defects, which are mostly in the borders, the poster can be displayed and enjoyed as it is, or certainly, one could choose to have additional restoration performed.
