Film: Rocky (1976)
Year poster printed: 1977 (first theatrical release in Italy)
Size: 39" x 55"
This is an original, linen-backed, Italian 2 Fogli movie poster from 1977 for Rocky starring Sylvester Stallone, Talia Shire, Burt Young, Carl Weathers and Burgess Meredith. John G. Avildsen directed the Academy Award-winning boxing film.
The movie was released in the United States in December 1976 and received 10 Oscar nominations. These nominations are noted on the poster. The film was released in Italy on March 25, 1977 (just three days before Rocky won Best Picture at the 49th annual Academy Awards).
The poster measures 39” x 55” and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. It was in very good to excellent condition prior to linen-backing with very minor edge and surface wear. This poster, like all Italian one panel movie posters, was folded at the time of printing. Most folds flatten out nicely for framing and are often desirable for vintage, collectible movie posters. Linen-backed posters are stored flat and will be rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.
Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying and not a stock photo). The small black circles in the corners of the poster are magnets. This rare and collectible poster, printed in early 1977 for the initial Italian release of Rocky, is not a reprint or reproduction.
