Important Added Info: Note that we auctioned this very same poster in 2005, and now it has been re-consigned to us 13 years later. Apparently, "Dick Tracy" did not translate well to other countries, because this remains the only non-U.S. poster we have ever auctioned from this movie!

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster was tri-folded only and it had minor wear on the folds. It had faint staining in the lower part of the gag on the girl at bottom left and minor border wear. Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to linenbacking. The restorer backed the poster "in the European style", meaning that they did not do restoration to the defects described above.
