This is what all you MARLON BRANDO fans have been waiting for!
This is a genuine 27"x41" U.S. one sheet ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER issued by the studio when the film was released and meant for theatrical display. This poster has been Linen Backed and is ready for framing.
These can be very difficult to find in any condition! A long time can go by without one of these coming up for sale. You will have trouble finding a nicer one.
Prior to Linen Backing this poster had a few imperfections.
This beautiful one sheet has
great color and is highly sought after by collectors. Incredibly hard
to find these in any condition. Prior to linen backing this poster was in C7
condition, now appears NEAR MINT. The bottom right corner (about 2") was
missing but has been replaced by our extremely talented restorer. No other
heavy work was done, just typical minor fold line touch up/restoration etc..
Looks beautiful! Well preserved.
This is NOT a reprint or reproduction poster! It is a REAL ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER issued by the studio when the film was released and meant for theatrical display.
We are absolutely certain it is authentic.
We use super strong hi-quality packaging materials including thick cardboard, masonite, and costly pvc plastic pipe. All posters are shipped insured and guaranteed to arrive safely.

Please read all of the information below before bidding/purchasing.
Please be advised that over 95% of all Original Movie Posters printed before the mid 1980's were issued FOLDED. This is NOT considered a defect. They were shipped to theaters this way. Vintage rolled posters do exist, however they are extremely rare. We can have any folded poster Linen Backed which will make the fold lines virtually disappear.
Also please note that most movie posters were actually used at the theater, and some will contain slight imperfections such as: writing on the back, pin holes, fold wear, small tears, etc. These are all very common and to be expected, but if they bother you, all these minor flaws can be remedied in the linen backing process. Linen Backing preserves and can actually increase the value of a poster. For the most part, any flaws will be fixed and the poster will appear to be in Near Mint condition. For more information about our Linen Backing service please contact us.
We do not always measure all of our posters exactly. Unless otherwise specified, poster measurements quoted above are approximate to the nearest inch. For example, if we say a one sheet poster is 27" x 41" its precise measurements may be closer to 26 3/4" x 40 7/8" (or something similar). This slight variance is quite common for all original movie posters.
There are fakes, bootlegs, reprints, and reproductions of almost every popular movie poster. WE DO NOT SELL THESE AS ORIGINALS LIKE OTHERS DO! There are many unscrupulous dealers who successfully pass off these posters as originals. They have been doing it for years! These fakes are almost indistinguishable from originals, only experts can tell. Many who buy them don't know they have been taken. They only discover years later when they sell them that they are worthless. Most are from popular movies from the 70's and 80’s, but there are also really old ones and relatively new ones as well. They usually appear in insert size 14" x 36" and one sheet size 27" x 41". Again, all we can say is BEWARE! For more information please see our EBAY GUIDES link above.
We grade our posters according to the Iguide Universal 10-Point Movie Poster Grading Scale.
C9 Near Mint - Investment quality. Minor flaw on an otherwise unused poster.
C8 Excellent - Investment quality. A few minor defects.
C7 Very Good to Excellent - Fine condition. Still a very nicely preserved item.
C6 Very Good - The typical used poster in average condition.
C5 Good to Very Good - A heavily-worn item.
C4 Good - Below average but still suitable for display.
C3 Fair - Heavily worn, but yet still complete.
C2 Poor to Fair - An extremely worn, possibly even incomplete item.
C1 Poor - The lowest grade, representing items in the lowest possible condition.
For details on this grading system please see our Ebay Guide GRADING / CONDITION.
Some of our posters are "between grades". For example, a C8-C9 poster will contain all the qualities/characteristics of a Near Mint C9 except for one or two very minor flaws that we believe prevent it from being a true C9.
