Important Added Info: Note that this poster was stamped "FOREIGN" which means it was printed for use outside the United States (there would also have been posters stamped "DOMESTIC" for use within the United States). Often, the "FOREIGN" posters would have a different (sometimes racier) image than that for the one used in the United States.

Condition: good. There are light brown dot stains scattered throughout the poster from exposure to moisture. There is some separation and tattering at the crossfolds.
