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

Some Like It Hot, the classic 1959 Billy Wilder (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award for this film) romantic musical cross-dressing drag crime comedy ("Hot!!!"; about two out of work musicians who happen to witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago, and they need to leave town in a hurry, but the only jobs they can get is with an all-girl band, and they dress in drag, and one of the band members is Marilyn Monroe!) starring Marilyn Monroe ("and her bosom companions"), Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film), George Raft, Pat O'Brien, and Joe E. Brown (the great star of 1920s and 1930s slapstick comedy, who practically steals this movie with a wonderful comic performance and an unforgettable final line!)

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that there are two different "original" versions of this one-sheet. They are incredibly similar, EXCEPT one has a 1959 copyright date in the lower left corner, and the other has a 1960 copyright date. That second version has slightly smaller type in the bottom copyright information than the 1959 version, and the words "All Rights Reserved" have been inserted to the left of "Country of Origin U.S.A." LOOKING VERY CLOSELY AT THE TWO POSTERS, IT SEEMS VERY CLEAR THAT THE PRINTING QUALITY OF THE TWO POSTERS IS INCREDIBLY SIMILAR. However, we are certain there are some collector "purists" who would only want the "1959" version and not the "1960" version, so know that THIS poster is the one with the 1959 copyright date (in case you prefer owning that version!).

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had tiny paper loss at the crossfolds. It had a faint second vertical foldline 1" to the right of the regular one, with minor wear on the folds. It had pinholes around the edges and some smudges in the red background areas. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
