This is an original, rolled, linen-backed half-sheet movie poster from 1955 for The Big Combo starring Cornel Wilde, Richard Conte, Brian Donlevy, Jean Wallace, Lee Van Cleef, Jay Adler, Helene Stanton, and Earl Holliman. Joseph H. Lewis directed the classic film noir.
The poster measures 22"x 28" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in very good condition prior to linen-backing with some smudges around the edges and pinholes from theatrical display. It was folded at the time of printing and was folded an extra time at some point. The folds are much less noticeable after being mounted on linen. Linen-backed posters are stored flat and rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.
Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying). The black circles in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This rare and collectible poster, printed in 1955 to promote the theatrical release of The Big Combo, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
