COURT JESTER, Original Vintage Danny Kaye Movie Poster

COURT JESTER 4193THE COURT JESTER, 1955. Original 1 Sheet (27 x 41” / 69 x 104 cm) folded Movie Poster starring Danny Kaye; co-starring Glynis Johns, and Basil Rathbone; written, produced and directed by Norman Panama and Melvin Frank. In this classic musical comedy, Kaye plays as a carnival performer, Hawkins, who must infiltrate the King’s castle by masquerading as the court jester as part of a plot against an evil impostor to the throne of the British Empire, Roderick. Although Hawkins is able to persuade Roderick and his men that he is the real jester, the story gets complicated when the Princess Gwendolyn falls in love with him. Considered by many to be the funniest of the Danny Kaye movies.

This folded poster is in good original condition, but has some evident tears and nicks along the margins – please click image to zoom in and review for yourself. We’d like to call-out the following issues: staple tears and pin holes in all corners; minor nicks and tears along the margins and a 2″ fold line separation along the bottom center fold; piece of margin missing from bottom left.

We will add in vintage paper during Linen backing and restoration process for an additional $80 upon request. For more information on linen backing please click here.

We recommend this poster be linen backed before purchasing to restore its beautiful colors and to immensely improve the condition issues described above.
