If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: good to very good. The poster is linenbacked; prior to restoration the poster had creases and smudges on some foldlines and tiny paper loss at some crossfolds; there were pinholes and tiny paper loss in the corners; it appears that there was a large piece of tape on the back of the center of the poster (approximately 2" x 10", going through the bottom of Allen's coat) that has slightly bled through to the front; the poster was well linenbacked and the flaws within the image were minimized during the backing process, but they can still be seen from close up, and are somewhat noticeable even from a distance away; Overall, the poster has had a fair amount of restoration, but it looks nice, and does not have a look or feel of heavy restoration.
