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

The Karate Kid (released in some countries as "The Moment of Truth"), the classic 1984 John G. Avildsen teen kung fu martial arts teaching melodrama ("He taught him the secret to Karate lies in the mind and heart. Not in the hands."; "Written by Robert Mark Kamen") starring Ralph Macchio (in the title role as Daniel LaRusso), Pat Morita (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; billed as "Noriyuki 'Pat' Morita" as Mr. Miyagi), Elisabeth Shue, Martin Kove, Randee Heller, and William Zabka (as Johnny). Note that this movie spawned three sequels, with Ralph Macchio returning in the first two sequels, "The Karate Kid Part II" in 1986 and "The Karate Kid Part III" in 1989. Macchio then left the series, and Hilary Swank became Pat Morita's new student in "The Next Karate Kid" in 1994. In 2018, YouTube produced a "Cobra Kai" TV series, cleverly bringing back Ralph Macchio 35 years later, with his old nemesis, William Zabka, returning as well. If you haven't seen Cobra Kai, and you are a fan of the original movie, you are almost certain to like it!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this poster has been personally autographed (signed) by Ralph Macchio (he added "Wax on!" and "Karate Kid")! Our consignor is a longtime dealer who acquired this signed item among many other purchases in his inventory, and he does not have a certificate of authenticity, but we believe the signature to likely be authentic. Also note that this poster has never been folded! Some pre-1970 half-sheet posters were folded twice horizontally at the poster exchange, while some were not. It can be difficult to find an unfolded example of many pre-1970 half-sheet posters (note that most post-1970 half-sheets were NOT folded, so they are pretty much only found unfolded, and therefore this does not apply to those half-sheets).

As is true of all the signed items we are currently auctioning, we give every buyer 30 days in which to review what they purchased and they can return any item as long as it is within 30 days of the end of the auction. On non-signed items, we give a "lifetime guarantee" on everything we auction, but on signed items, we give the above modified guarantee of 30 days after the auction closes.

Condition: very good.
