Thunder Road, the classic 1958 Arthur Ripley alcohol bootlegging crime thriller ("Robert Mitchum roars down the hottest highway on earth!"; "Robert Mitchum blasts the screen!"; "Raw and rough as today's billion-dollar whiskey war!"; "He's trapped between the T-Men and the Terror-Mob on the hottest highway on Earth!"; "More savage than the Tommy-Gun Massacre of the Roaring Twenties... TODAY'S BILLION-DOLLAR WHISKEY WAR!!!"; "Based on an original story by Robert Mitchum") starring Robert Mitchum, Gene Barry, Jacques Aubuchon, Keely Smith, Trevor Bardette, Sandra Knight (billed as "Introducing Sandra Knight"), and Jim Mitchum (he played his father's kid brother, which seemed believable because of how well Mitchum had aged!)

Condition: very good. This poster was linenbacked, and one of the following is true: either the poster had minor defects, and was well backed, OR it had more significant defects, but they were extremely well restored, OR it had some very minor defects that were not completely restored, and are somewhat noticeable. You can tell which of the above is the case for this particular poster by reading our "pre-restoration" description and also by looking at our "super-sized" image of the actual poster (we are the only major auction company we know of that gives accurate detailed pre-restoration information about linenbacked posters to our bidders, but we wish everyone did!). Note that we gave this condition grade to a very few posters that were in pretty good condition prior to linenbacking, but which were not all that well linenbacked, and which could be fairly easily re-backed with only minor additional restoration.
The poster had small areas of paper loss at a few of the crossfolds. There were some creases and tiny tears on some foldlines. There were pinholes in the corners and minor border defects. Overall, the poster was in very good to fine condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was well backed, and looks great!
