An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh; measures 27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm]) (Learn More)

Daddy Long Legs, the 1955 Jean Negulesco romantic dance musical ("From the novel by Jean Webster"; "Ballets by Roland Petit"; about a middle aged millionaire who meets an 18 year old girl in an orphanage, and he is in love with her, but restrains himself and sends her to college, but after several years, they fall in love) starring Fred Astaire, Leslie Caron, Terry Moore, Thelma Ritter, Fred Clark, Charlotte Austin, Larry Keating, Kathryn Givney, Kelly Brown, and Ray Anthony and His Orchestra. Note that this movie was based on a play and novel by Jean Webster from 1912. It was made into a silent movie in 1919 starring Mary Pickford, and was remade as a sound film in 1931 with Janet Gaynor, and then was significantly altered so that Shirley Temple could play the lead in "Curly Top" in 1935, and then was remade as this movie. Obviously, it is extremely unlikely that this plot will ever be used again, because in today's world, a story about a middle aged man falling in love with an 18 year old that he "adopts" is very inappropriate!

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster had small paper loss at the top crossfold and tiny paper loss at the other crossfolds. There were some tears and tiny bits of paper loss in the top quarter of the vertical foldline, with a lesser amount of wear on the other folds. The title was written on the back of the top quarter of the vertical foldline and it bled through to the front. There were some pinholes and tears around the edges. Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects.
