Important Added Info: Note that this poster has been paperbacked. What is paperbacking? This means the poster was backed onto a light paper backing (acid-free), that is similar in feel to that of the original poster (it means that the poster must be handled carefully, as the backing does not give it much added strength, but it is similar to having an unrestored poster, and yet it has been properly preserved). It is a similar process to linenbacking, except that most collectors use linenbacking for one-sheets and paperbacking for half-sheets, inserts, window cards.

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. Prior to paperbacking, the poster was never folded, but it had many creases scattered across the middle of the image and some pinholes, creases and tears around the edges. Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to paperbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but it appears that someone put a piece of clear tape in the center of the top and right blank borders after the poster was backed, and they then removed it, leaving tape residue in the right blank border and residue and surface paper loss in the top blank border (see our image). They also put a piece of masking tape on the back of the middle of each border, but it does not affect the front.
