This is an original, linen-backed, one-sheet movie poster from 1958 for Touch of Evil starring Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh, Orson Welles, Joseph Calleia, Akim Tamiroff, Marlene Dietrich and Zsa Zsa Gabor. Orson Welles directed the classic film noir based on the novel 'Badge of Evil' by Whit Masterson. Bob Tollen is the artist for the poster.
The poster measures 27" x 41" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. Prior to backing, the poster was in very good to excellent condition with minimal edge and fold wear from previous handling. It was folded at the time of printing but the fold lines are less noticeable after restoration. Linen-backed posters are stored flat and rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.
Please look closely at the photos (this is the exact poster you are buying). It is not cropped or a stock image. The black circles in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This rare and collectible poster, printed in 1958 to promote the initial, theatrical release of Touch of Evil, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
