If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that we have only once before auctioned this Nicaraguan poster, which is a "country of origin" poster for this partially Nicaraguan movie! The buyer of that poster has now consigned it to us, so this is still the only example of this poster we have ever auctioned, and also the only movie paper item from this movie we have ever auctioned!

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good. The poster was placed on to a very thin linen backing shortly after being printed. The purpose was to reinforce the poster, so that it would survive, when it was passed from theater to theater, and when it was put up on walls and taken down. Such posters can be professionally removed from the original linen and placed on to a proper linen backing. It has a few stains scattered in various areas and the linen is quite visible from the front. Please see our super-sized image to get a good sense of the condition of this item prior to placing a bid and please do not bid unless you can accept the defects described above, or you are willing to pay to have them properly restored.
