It has become clear there are two original versions of this poster that are identical in all ways except for a stronger blue toning in one versus the other. The stronger blue tones appear to be rarer and this happens to be one of those versions. The darker toned version is also featured on our site <Here>.
This particular tri-fold international style c movie poster is in fine condition and has been linen backed at our studio. Prior to linen backing there was very light wear along the fold lines and some edge wear. On the bottom right there are some border chips. Outside of this, the poster is in wonderful condition. Now that it has been linen backed the poster speaks for itself in terms of how good it looks and how beautifully it displays.
