Important Added Info: Note that this poster was folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube.

Condition: very good to fine. the poster has slightly darkened with age; there is discoloration in the bottom blank border; there are a total of seven pinholes in the poster; there are one each in the center of the top and bottom blank borders; there is one in the brim of Keaton's hat near the center of the poster; there is one near the very center of the poster in the background between the "A" and "T" of "KEATON"; there is one in the credits area above the bottom photo between "Richard" and "Schayer"; there are two in the bottom red background area above and below "Mayer"; there is a clean 1" tear in the top blank border slightly to the left of center; there is a small water stain in the left blank border at the left end of the top foldline that slightly extends on to the foldline by 1"; there are minor creases across the top of the top blank border. Other than the above very minor defects, the poster is in really nice unrestored condition (and the paper quality is very nice and not at all fragile). The seven pinholes are all in unimportant areas and are not noticeable or distracting. I would think most collectors would be quite happy with this poster as is, but of course a talented restorer could easily repair the pinholes and the other minor defects, and the poster would appear "perfect" without requiring hardly any restoration or paint.
