This is an original, linen-backed, French theatrical movie poster from 1963 for Diary of a Madman starring Vincent Price, Nancy Kovack, Chris Warfield, Elaine Devry, Ian Wolfe, and Stephen Roberts. Reginald Le Borg directed the suspense thriller. Boris Grinsson is the artist for the poster.
The moyenne poster measures 22.25" x 29.25" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in good to very good condition prior to restoration with tape residue on the corners from theatrical display. It was folded after printing and had minor fold wear. The folds 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). The black circles in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This very rare and collectible poster, printed in 1963 to promote the French theatrical release of Diary of a Madman, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
