This is an original, linen-backed, British quad theatrical movie poster from 1964 for A Hard Day's Night starring The Beatles (John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr), Wilfrid Brambell, Norman Rossington, John Junkin, Victor Spinetti, and Anna Quayle. Richard Lester directed the classic musical-comedy.
The poster measures 30" x 40" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in good to very good condition prior to linen-backing and restoration. A portion of the top, blank border had previously been trimmed off but has since been restored. There were some scattered scuffs and smudges in a few spots of the poster. It was folded at the time of printing but the folds are greatly minimized after linen-backing.
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 extremely rare and collectible poster, printed in 1964 to promote the initial, British theatrical release of A Hard Day's Night, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
