Important Added Info: The poster has an oddity! While this is an original U.S. one-sheet from this movie it was used in a Spanish-speaking country and the title was very neatly over-printed in Spanish at the top of the poster. It was done so well that it looks like it was printed that way!

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good. The poster was overprinted with the Spanish title at top (see above). It had tiny bits of paper loss and surface paper loss along all the foldlines. It had paper loss in the bottom left corner, extending into the red background area, with other paper loss in the rest of the bottom border, extending into the red background to the left of the NSS number. Overall, the poster was in fair to 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, and the restoration in the bottom border was done oddly, with pieces of other posters glued over the original poster.
