Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Folded One-Sheet Movie Poster (measures 27" x 41"; signed by Marlon Brando) (Learn More)

Stanley Kramer's The Men, the 1950 Fred Zinnemann post-World War II (WWII) romantic hospital doctor paralyzed veteran rehabilitation melodrama ("A completely new experience between men and women!..."; "More punch than 'Champion' more guts than 'Home of the Brave'"; "from the producer who dares to make pictures as they've never been made before..."; "Story and Screenplay by Carl Foreman"; "Produced by Stanley Kramer"; about a paralyzed veteran who cannot cope with his injury from World War II) starring Marlon Brando (in his very first movie!), Teresa Wright, Everett Sloane, Jack Webb, Richard Erdman, Virginia Farmer, Dorothy Tree, and Howard St. John. Note that United Artists was panic-stricken at the thought of promoting a movie about a paralyzed man (even though he was a World War II veteran), and so they promoted the movie with an image of Brando shown from the waist up (so you couldn't see his wheelchair!), and the really vague and bizarre tagline, "a completely new experience between men and women!".

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: very good. The poster is linenbacked; prior to restoration the poster had creases and smudges on some foldlines; there were creases and smudges around the edges of the poster, and pinholes in the corners; there was black writing on the back of the center of the top blank border which is visible from the front; there were smudges in some of the white background areas; the poster was linenbacked many years ago on a very thin linenbacking, much thinner than that which most restorers use currently; the backer pretty much just mounted the poster, so the flaws described above are somewhat visible, but not really distracting (except for the bleed through in the top blank border). Since the top border could be easily matted over during framing, I would think many collectors would be happy to display the poster on their wall as is; of course, any talented restorer could re-back the poster and correct its minor flaws and it would look wonderful!
