This is the Original (1sh) movie poster HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER. It was used by Universal to promote this movie when it was released in 1973. It is not a reprint nor a reproduction.Clint Eastwood, Marianna Hill, Verna Bloom, Geoffrey Lewis, John Hillerman, Robert Donner, Billy Curtis, Jack Ging, Mitch Ryan, Stefan Gierasch, Ted Hartley, Scott Walker, Paul Brinegar, Anthony James, William O'Connell, John Quade, Dan Vadis, Buddy Van Horn, and John Mitchum. HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER was directed by Clint Eastwood. Rtwork is by Ron Lesser. This original, restored, movie poster is rolled and linen backed and measures 27" x 41". With the linen, it measures 28.50" x " x 42.25. Prior to restoration and linen backing, the poster was Folded. Most original movie posters pre 1985 are Folded.
This is not considered a flaw or defect. This original movie poster is graded C8.5, Very Fine/Near Mint. Original movie posters are graded as follows from the top down: C10 (Mint), C9 (Near Mint), C8 (Very Fine), C7 (Fine/Very Fine), C6 (Fine or Very Good), C5 (Good to Very Good), C4 (Good), etc. The pre-restoration grade was C7.5 Very Fine Minus. Restoration corrected Fold wear, wear along the edges.
Minor fold separations, creases, and a few small tears. After restoration, this original movie poster now displays beautifully. It has a very clean appearance with solid and rich colors. And the details of the images are excellent. For quite a while I have been looking for an original of HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER that was not currently Folded, because those Folded originals had very visible Fold lines, in good part because the background colors of this original movie poster are dark colors, which made the Fold lines much more visible.
The prior Fold lines on this original - through restoration and linen backing - are now unobtrusive at a normal viewing distance. We believe that the original movie poster HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER has excellent investment value. The investment value is also increased by the high grade of C8.5 (Very Fine/Near Mint) of this poster, while the linen backing will ensure its longevity. If you have any questions, please let me know.I have been collecting original movie posters for over 30 years, and I understand that buyers, like myself, expect representations of items for sale that are accurate, complete, and truthful.
