This is an original, three-sheet theatrical movie poster from 1958 for Touch of Evil starring Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh, Orson Welles, Joseph Calleia, Akim Tamiroff, Marlene Dietrich and Zsa Zsa Gabor. Orson Welles directed the classic film noir based on the novel 'Badge of Evil' by Whit Masterson. Bob Tollen is the artist for the poster.
The poster measures 41" x 81" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in very good to excellent condition prior to restoration with very minor fold and cross-fold wear. The fold lines are much less noticeable after linen-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). The black circles and squares along the edges of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This very rare and collectible poster, printed in 1958 to promote the initial, theatrical release of Touch of Evil, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
