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

Rene Clair's And Then There Were None, the 1945 Rene Clair crime murder mystery thriller ("From the story by Agatha Christie", where ten people are invited to a desert island, and one by one, they are killed) starring Barry Fitzgerald, Walter Huston, Louis Hayward, Roland Young, June Duprez, Sir C. Aubrey Smith, Mischa Auer, Judith Anderson, Richard Haydn, Queenie Leonard, and Harry Thurston. Note that this book was originally published in 1939 as "Ten Little Niggers", taken from the nursery rhyme that had been written many years before. That title was already offensive in the U.S., and the title was changed to "And Then There Were None" for the U.S. publication, and for the 1945 film version that followed (that is the final line of the nursery rhyme). In England, the book title was later changed to "Ten Little Indians", and in 1965, an English remake was given that title, as were several other remakes. Ironically, the name "Ten Little Indians" is now itself "politically incorrect", so that name also is no longer used.

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: fair to good. The poster had small paper loss at the top crossfold and tiny paper loss at the other two crossfolds. It had minor wear on the folds and some pinholes, tears, and small paper loss around the edges. Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was well backed, but at some point after it was backed, it acquired tiny areas of surface paper loss in the foreheads or faces of some of the stars' images, and also in Rene Clair's credit, and one small area in the bottom of the "N" of "AND" below it. Any talented restorer could perform the slight additional restoration required without re-backing the poster, and afterwards, this poster will displays great on the new owner's wall!
