This is an original, Finnish theatrical movie poster from 1965 for Thunderball starring Sean Connery, Claudine Auger, Adolfo Celi, Luciana Paluzzi, Rik Van Nutter, Martine Beswick, Guy Doleman, Molly Peters, and Bernard Lee. Terence Young directed the film. Robert McGinnis and Frank McCarthy are the artists for the poster.
The poster measures 15.75" x 23.5" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in good condition prior to restoration with some paper loss on the bottom-right corner, minor edge wear, and rippling across the surface. It has never been folded.
Please look closely at the photos (this is the exact poster you are buying). The small black squares in the corners of the excess linen are magnets and not pins.
This very rare and collectible poster, printed in 1965 to promote the initial theatrical release of Ian Fleming's Thunderball in Finland, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
