This is an original, English three-sheet theatrical movie poster from 1974 for The Longest Yard (released in the UK and other countries as "The Mean Machine") starring Burt Reynolds, Eddie Albert, Ed Lauter, Michael Conrad, James Hampton and Harry Caesar. Robert Aldrich directed the prison sports comedy.
The poster measures 39.5” x 79” (it has not been trimmed) and was printed in two sections designed to overlap. It is in very good condition with creasing and tiny tears along parts of the outer edges. It was folded at the time of printing and has creasing along many of the crossfolds. There's a pinhole separation at the top cross-fold. 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 are buying). It is not cropped or a stock image.
This very rare and collectible movie poster, printed to promote the British theatrical release of The Longest Yard , is not a reprint or reproduction.
