Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: fair to good. The poster had small paper loss at the crossfolds and some separation, tears, and tiny paper loss on parts of some foldlines. There was an 8" slightly diagonal tear in the top center of the poster (just to the right of the credits in the solid white area). There were some scattered faint brown water stains throughout the poster (see our image). It had pinholes around the edges with some darkening in the corners, where there was paper tape on the back. Overall, the poster was in fair to 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. Note that the restorer who mounted the poster did not leave any excess linen around the edges of the poster. Please do not bid on this poster unless you can accept its defects described above or are willing to pay to have additional restoration.
