Important Added Info: Note that this is an EXTREMELY rare poster! For unknown reasons, the original release one-sheet and lobby cards on this classic holiday movie are not all that rare, and I have sold lots of each over the past 18 years. But I have NEVER before sold this insert! 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.

Condition: very good to fine. The poster had very minor creases along the foldlines and a very few faint scuffs in the image. There were some pinholes, creases, and tiny tears around the edges of the poster. Overall, the image area of the poster was in excellent condition prior to paperbacking. The poster was well backed. The person who did the restoration put new blank white paper over all the borders to even out the appearance (but the small writing at the bottom of the poster was not covered over). This is a common technique used by several top restorers. It is done so well that the majority of collectors are not even aware it has been done, and many do not feel it to be a significant detraction (since it is only blank white area). I can't imagine a collector who would not love to have this wonderful poster displayed on their wall!
