This is the Original (1sh) movie poster LOLITA. To promote this movie when it was released in 1962. It is not a reprint nor a reproduction. The movie stars James Mason , Sue Lyon, Shelley Winters, Peter Sellers , Lois Maxwell, Gary Cockrell, Jerry Stovin, Diana Decker, and Cec Linder. It was directed by Stanley Kubrick.
This restored movie poster is Rolled and measures 41.5" x 83", normally called a Three Sheet. This poster is also linen backed. With linen backing the overall poster plus linen measures 43.75" x 85.25". The restoration corrected light edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, very minor paper loss, pinholes, and tears from the right border into the background.
This original movie poster is now graded C8.5, Very Fine to 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), etc. It is difficult to find any pre-1985 original movie posters graded C10 (Mint). Original movie posters - by generally recognized standards - cannot receive a grade higher than C8.5 after restoration.
Prior to restoration this poster was graded C7 Fine/Very Fine. Due to aging, the linen backing is torn in a few spots and is - as is normal for linen backing - fraying at the edges. Fraying sometimes occurs even on newly linen backed posters. These things that are present at the edges on the linen will be alleviated once the poster is framed. The "bubbling" in the poster, which is also possibly due to the aging of the linen, will be alleviated once the poster is laid flat and properly framed.Once framed, this oversized Three Sheet of LOLITA will definitely make an amazingly eye catching and stunning poster. We have no doubt that the original movie poster LOLITA has significant investment value. And it will be an incredible addition to any collection of original movie posters.
