Believe It or Not (1930)
This is an original, linen-backed, one-sheet movie poster from 1930 for Believe it or Not featuring Robert L. Ripley. The Vitaphone documentary film series was shown in 24 parts as theatrical shorts from 1930 to 1932. It featured Robert Ripley presenting stories of strange and odd events which he first did in a newspaper panel in 1919.
The 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 restoration with a few small tears, stains, and small areas of paper loss from previous handling. It was folded at the time of printing and had small tears with some paper loss on some of the fold lines. The poster was expertly restored and is now in very good to excellent condition. 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 a stock image. The black circles in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This extremely rare and collectible movie poster, printed in 1930 to promote the 24 part documentary short Believe it or Not, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
