This is an original, French grande theatrical movie poster from 1976 for King Kong starring Jeff Bridges, Charles Grodin, Jessica Lange, John Randolph, and Rene Auberjonois. John Guillermin directed the remake of the classic 1933 film. John Berkey is the artist for the poster.
The Style A poster measures 47” x 63” and is in very good condition with a several pinholes in each corner, at the center of the top edge, and on the right edge of the poster from theatrical display. There are two extremely tiny tears on the bottom-left and bottom-right corners from rough removal from display. There is a small, round, studio snipe (sticker) on the lower left corner of the poster. It was folded at the time of printing. Most folds flatten out nicely for framing and are often desirable for vintage, collectible movie posters.
Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you will receive). 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 collectible poster, printed in 1976 to promote the French theatrical release of King Kong, is not a reproduction or reprint.
