An Original Vintage Theatrical Unfolded Printer's Test One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh; measures 28" x 41" [71 x 104 cm]) (Learn More)

Jaws 2, the 1978 Jeannot Szwarc man-eating Great White shark attack horror sequel ("...May be too INTENSE for younger children"; "ALL NEW"; "Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water..."; "Written by Carl Gottlieb and Howard Sackler"; "Based on characters created by Peter Benchley") starring Roy Scheider, Lorraine Gary, Murray Hamilton, Joseph Mascolo, Jeffrey Kramer, Collin Wilcox Paxton, and Cindy Grover (as the girl swimmer in the close encounter with the shark). Note that Steven Spielberg, who had directed the original Jaws, did not return to direct this sequel, and he later stated that it was because of the horrendous problems they had in filming the first movie (particularly in making the mechanical shark, Bruce, work), and he was afraid to possibly repeat that experience!

Important Added Info: This is a very rare uncut printer's test poster (often referred to as a "printer's proof")! Before a poster was printed in large quantities, the printer would print a limited number of posters as "test" posters. Because they needed to be shown to people at the studio, people in the art department, the stars, etc, they would print a number of test posters and distribute them to these people. Some of them would be fully trimmed, but often they would leave the color chart on the left edge of many of the posters, which added an extra inch to the width of the poster (which explains why the poster measures 28" x 41"). Once these printer's test posters were shown to the various people in a position to "OK" them, the printer would print the full print run of the posters. Not only is a printer's test poster far more rare than a regular poster, but it is also 100% genuine as there is no fear of purchasing a reproduction! Note that this poster measures 28" x 41" [71 x 104 cm].

Condition: very good to fine. There is a 3" diagonal crease in the upper left corner of the poster and there are some very minor creases scattered throughout but they are not very noticeable or distracting and the poster displays well.
