R53 Vintage Theatrical Folded One-Sheet Movie Poster (measures 27" x 41") (Learn More)

Mighty Joe Young, the classic 1949 Ernest B. Schoedsack fantasy animal gorilla ape thriller ("Striking! Startling! Staggering!"; "Merian Cooper's amazing adventure in the unusual!"; "Staggering sensation! Electrifying excitement!"; "The ten most terrific thrills ever pictured"; "The cyclonic cavalcade of electrifying sensations that makes your eyes pop out and your heart skip a beat!"; produced by John Ford & Merian C. Cooper; with special effects by Ray Harryhausen, in his first movie, and "Technical Creator Willis O'Brien", creator of King Kong!) starring Terry Moore, Ben Johnson, Robert Armstrong, Frank McHugh, Douglas Fowley, Paul Guilfoyle, Nestor Paiva, and Pat Barton. Note that Ray Harryhausen was sadly not given any credit on the posters for this movie, likely because he was unknown at this time, but Willis O'Brien was credited, no doubt in the hopes that people would remember him from King Kong!

Condition: very good to fine. there is separation at the bottom crossfold (around 1/2" horizontally and 1" vertically) and there is tiny paper loss; there is 1" of separation at the top crossfold; there is tiny separation in the left and right end of the bottom foldline; there are very minor creases and smudges around the edges of the poster; The above is truly nitpicking! The poster is in really nice condition, and its defects are minor. It is entirely unrestored, and there is not a piece of tape or a pinhole anywhere on it! Plus it has that great "crisp" feel to it, as if it was barely ever opened!
