This is an original one-sheet movie poster from 1954 for On the Waterfront starring Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, Lee J. Cobb, Rod Steiger, Pat Henning and Eva Marie Saint. Elia Kazan directed the classic film.
The postermeasures 27" x 41" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in very good condition prior to backing and restoration with pinholes from theatrical display, minor edge wear and some creases and tiny tears on some of the folds and cross-folds. It was folded at the time of printing but the folds are much less noticeable after backing. 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). It is not cropped or a stock image. The black circles in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This rare and extremely collectible poster, printed in 1954 to promote the initial, theatrical release of On the Waterfront, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
