Important Added Info: Note that ANY movie paper items from this movie are incredibly rare. We have only previously auctioned a single still and a glass slide from this movie (and NO other movie paper) until we received this lobby card! Also note that we have a scan of both the front and the back of this lobby card, which should greatly help you see what defects it has.

Condition: very good. There is a piece of brown paper tape on the back of each corner, but they were not put there for any restoration purpose. Otherwise, the card is in pretty nice condition!
