ROADRACERS, 1959. Original car racing Grand Prix Drive-in 1 sheet (27 x 41” / 68 x 104 cm) Linen backed movie theater poster for sale starring; Joel Lawrence, Marian Collier, Skip Ward writer Stanley Kallis (original story and screenplay) and director Arthur Swerdloff. This really stylistic Drive-in Movie theater film, filmed at the American Grand Prix at the Laguna Seca race track in Monterey, California is not so well a known film. It does however feature an epic hot rod car racing scene at the end of the movie that features some classic Porsches, Alfa Romeos and late 50s Corvettes! These kind of drive-in movie posters are very classic and are featured in car collector’s show rooms, man caves and game rooms. Jay Leno uses this style of poster to decorate his automobile show room floor walls and is absolutely spectacular!
This particular original 1 sheet car racing movie theater poster featured at 50s drive-ins is currently linen backed, but prior to linen backing was in good condition. It had only a few minor imperfections to note; the upper and lower margin showed the most extensive damage, it had 4 tears at the top margin (2 with missing paper <1/2″) and 2 at the bottom margin. in addition there was some tape on the back of the poster that has since been removed, there were pin holes in the bottom right and left quadrants and the top horizontal fold line along the right margin is torn. Outside of this the colors are vibrant and the fold lines are in fantastic condition. You can see after linen backing the poster appears to be in near mint condition now, it is in fact in good to very good condition now.
