This is an original, rolled, Japanese B2 movie poster from 1953 for the initial, theatrical release of Double Indemnity (1944) starring Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck, Edward G. Robinson, Porter Hall, Jean Heather, Byron Barr, Richard Gaines, John Philliber, and Fortunio Bonanova. Billy Wilder directed the classic film noir. This poster is from the first (post World War 2) release of the film in Japan.
The poster measures 20 1/4" x 28 5/8" and is in very good condition with minimal creasing on the lower-left corner, a small tear on the bottom edge, and a few, tiny tears on the left edge. The poster has never been folded.
Please look closely at the photos (this is the exact poster you are buying). It is not cropped or a stock image. The black squares in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This rare and extremely collectible poster, printed in 1953 to promote the initial, Japanese theatrical release of Double Indemnity, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
