This is an original, linen-backed, one-sheet movie poster from 1972 for The Godfather starring Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire and John Cazale. Francis Ford Coppola directed the Academy Award-winning film based on the book by Mario Puzo. S. Neil Fujita is the artist for the poster.
The teaser poster measures 27" x 41" 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 surface creasing, edge wear and pinholes from theatrical display. There is some slight darkening on the upper-left corner of the poster. It was folded at the time of printing but the fold lines are much less noticeable after linen-backing. Linen-backed posters are stored flat and will be 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.
This rare and very collectible poster, printed in 1972 to tease the initial, theatrical release of The Godfather, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
