This is an original, German A1 theatrical movie poster from 1963 for the initial, release of Dr. No (1962) starring Sean Connery, Ursula Andress, Joseph Wiseman, Jack Lord, Bernard Lee, John Kitzmiller, Eunice Gayson, and Lois Maxwell. Terence Young directed the classic James Bond film. Atelier Degen is the artist for the poster.
The poster measures 23” x 33” and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. Prior to restoration, the poster was in very good condition with pinholes and light tape residue in the corners from theatrical display and some tiny creases and scuffs along the fold lines from previous handling. There was a tiny bit of paper loss on the upper-right edge. The poster was folded at the time of printing but the folds are much less noticeable after backing. 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 extremely rare and collectible movie poster, printed in 1963 to promote the initial, German theatrical release of Dr. No, is not a reprint or reproduction.
