If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this poster has never been folded! Most half-sheet posters were folded twice (once horizontally and once vertically) right off of the printing press. It is very difficult to find an unfolded copy of most half-sheets, especially from before 1970!

Condition: fine. there are a few minor creases, faint smudges, and a couple of tiny stains around the edges of the poster, but overall, it is in really wonderful condition, and it is unfolded too!
