Flippen, Paul Fix, Hans Conried, John Bishop, Roland Winters, and Richard Rober. Note that RKO had ceased to exist at the time this movie was released, and that Universal probably re-used old printing plates, and put their logo at the bottom, covering over the old one which explains why materials on this movie have both studios printed on them!

Artist: Ren Wicks
Important Added Info: Note that this some posters for this movie have the RKO logo in the lower right, but under that is "Released by UNIVERSAL-INTERNATIONAL". There are other posters that don't have that printing in the lower right, but which have the RKO copyright overprinted with black in the lower left, and have "UNIVERSAL PICTURES CO., INC." overprinted below it. We believe this means that these posters were used for the non-U.S. release of this movie. If anyone knows for sure, please e-mail us and we will post it here.

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: fair. Some demented teen drew a silly sideburn on Wayne and also pencil marks on his upper lip. There is a pencil mark that goes from his eyebrow into the background at the left of his head. Otherwise, the poster had tiny paper loss at the crossfolds and minor fold and border wear. The person who backed the poster did not attempt to restore the graffiti (see our image). Please do not bid on this poster unless you can accept its significant defects described above or are willing to pay to have them properly restored.
