Important Added Info: Note that this French poster measures 23 1/2" x 31 1/2" and that it is linenbacked. Also note that this is a rare "country of origin" poster for this classic French fantasy movie!

Condition: No condition recorded. This poster was linenbacked, and the restorer did a good job, but you can see signs of the restoration from inches away (since most people look at posters framed on a wall from at least a few feet away, we don't feel this is a defect, but we feel it should be noted). See below for this poster's pre-restoration condition (we are the only major auction company we know of that shares this information with our bidders, but we wish everyone did!).

good to very good. There was paper loss in the top left corner extending into the edge of the black background. There was a tear running from the right of the top foldline (4" from the right edge of the poster) running down to the middle foldline (it goes through The Beast's hair. There are some faint scuffs in the solid black background areas. There was small paper loss at the crossfolds and some creases and small tears along the foldlines. There were some pinholes, tears, creases, and smudges around the edges of the poster. The poster was well restored, and its defects were well corrected. You can see signs of them from inches away, but from any distance the poster looks quite nice!
