Important Added Info: Note that we have never before auctioned this really cool and mysterious poster! What is the mystery? We don't know where it was created and for what purpose. We don't think there is a chance that it is a commercial poster, because it seems way too big to be something that was sold, and it has no indications of that anyway. It has the UA/Transamerica logo that is on the international U.S. posters from before the Academy Awards, but it was sent to us from a Japanese collector. There is nothing to indicate that it is Japanese (it is entirely in English), and also, the first release Japanese posters had the old UA logo on them, so we feel we can surely rule out that it is Japanese. So what is it? Our best guess is that it is a special promotional poster that was sent out to other English speaking countries before the movie played there (perhaps Australia, New Zealand, or Canada), and we think it would be from before the movie opened anywhere, to try to get those countries to book it, but of course, that is only a guess. Still, it is a great poster with a completely different image from any other Graduate poster we have ever seen, and it is a really cool size! But please don't bid on it unless you can accept the uncertainties outlined above. If anyone knows more about any of this, please e-mail us and we will post it here.

Condition: very good. The poster was never folded. There are some light creases around the edges and a few scattered in the image. There is a tiny pinhole in each corner. Certainly, it can be displayed and enjoyed as it is, or one might choose to have it backed. Either way, the new owner will have a really cool poster that perhaps no one else in the world has, something very unusual for a 1968 mainstream movie!
