This is an original, Italian 4 Fogli movie poster from the 1960s for a theatrical re-release of All Quiet on the Western Front starring Lew Ayres, Louis Wolheim, John Wray, Arnold Lucy, Ben Alexander, Scott Kolk, Owen Davis Jr., Walter Rogers, William Bakewell, and Russell Gleason. Lewis Milestone directed the classic World War I film that was banned in Italy until 1956.
The poster measures 55" x 78" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in very good condition prior to restoration with some minor fold wear with a few small tears at a few of the cross-folds. It was printed in two sections that were designed to overlap and was folded at the time of printing. The fold lines are much less visible after linen-backing. The poster has been stored flat for many years and will be rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.
Please look closely at the photos (this is theexactposter you are buying). The small, black circles and squares around the edges of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This very rare and collectible poster, printed in the 1960s to promote an Italian theatrical re-release of All Quiet on the Western Front, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
