An Original Vintage Theatrical Paperbacked English Half-Sheet Movie Poster (1/2sh; measures approximately 22" x 28" [56 x 71 cm]) (Learn More)

The Captain's Paradise, the 1953 Anthony Kimmins English seafaring bigamy romantic comedy ("No man's ever had it so good!"; "Guinness is at his superb best!"; about a captain of an international ferry who has wives in both ports) starring Alec Guinness (in the title role as Captain Henry St. James), Yvonne De Carlo, Celia Johnson, Charles Goldner, and Miles Malleson

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this is a "country of origin" poster for this English movie! Also note that this poster has been paperbacked. What is paperbacking? This means the poster was backed onto a paper backing (acid-free), that is similar in feel to that of the original poster (except somewhat heavier). It is a similar process to linenbacking, except that most collectors use linenbacking for one-sheets and paperbacking for half-sheets, inserts, window cards, and lobby cards. Note that because this poster was paperbacked onto a thicker paper backing, it CAN'T be sent rolled (someone could conceivably roll it or try to do so, but we know it would definitely lessen its condition, so we will only send it in a very large flat package, unless the buyer insists, and then they would be responsible for any damage).

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. Prior to paperbacking, the poster had minor wear on both folds and some faint smudges around the edges. Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to paperbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects. Also, the poster was slightly roughly handled, and it has developed a very slight partial vertical fold (but it is hardly noticeable from the front).
