An Original Vintage Theatrical Paperbacked Insert Movie Poster (measures 14" x 36") (Learn More)

The Misfits, the 1961 John Huston modern-day romantic cowboy western ("It shouts and sings with life... explodes with love!"; "Never again will the screen hold such excitement!"; "The world's greatest photographers shoot 'the Misfits'!"; with a screenplay by Arthur Miller) starring Clark Gable (in his last film), Marilyn Monroe (in her last completed film), Montgomery Clift, Thelma Ritter, Eli Wallach, and James Barton (in his last film). Note that Arthur Miller was at the time married to Monroe, but the marriage fell apart during filming. He began to see Inge Morath, a photographer documenting production of this film, and she later became his third and final wife. Also note that Clark Gable went on a crash diet before production started, losing 35 pounds. His health was already precarious, and he suffered from a coronary thrombosis the day after shooting finished, dying ten days later. He was 59.

Important Added Info: Note that this poster has been paperbacked. What is paperbacking? This means the poster was backed onto a paper backing (acid-free), that is similar in feel to that of the original poster (except somewhat heavier). It is a similar process to linenbacking, except that most collectors use linenbacking for one-sheets and paperbacking for half-sheets, inserts, window cards, and lobby cards.

Condition: very good to fine. The poster was never folded. It had a tiny hole in the background below Marilyn's left foot and a few tiny scuffs scattered in the image. There were some tiny pinholes in the borders. Overall, the poster was in very good to fine condition prior to paperbacking. The poster was well backed, and looks great!
