    Year poster printed: 1959

    This is an original, linen-backed half-sheet movie poster from 1959 for Francois Truffaut's The 400 Blows starring Jean-Pierre Leaud, Claire Maurier, Albert Remy, Guy Decomble, Georges Flamant, and Patrick Auffay. Francois Truffaut directed the film that was released in France as Les Quatre Cents Coups. The film had a limited art-house theater release in the United States in 1959 and this poster is from that initial release.

    The poster measures 22"x 28" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in good to very good condition prior to linen-backing with minor corner wear and some surface smudges and wear. The poster was folded in half at the time of printing in 1959 but has been stored flat for many years. It will be rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.

    Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying).

    The small black circles in the corners are magnets to hold the poster down and are not any defect or part of the poster.

    This rare and collectible poster, printed in 1959 to promote the theatrical release of The 400 Blows, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
