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 of this poster was C7, Fine/Very Fine. Restoration alleviated most of the flaws including light edge wear, tears, minor paper loss, and faint unobtrusive stains. The poster is now a gem, and is almost simplistic in its image.But it catches John Wayne, Ricky Nelson, and Dean Martin in poses that certainly remind one of RIO BRAVO. The orange and yellow background is deep and rich and lies on a very flat and smooth poster devoid of any wrinkles, creasing (except that one crease), and bunching. We believe that this poster has investment value given the popularity of the movie, John Wayne, and the high grade (C8.5) of the original movie poster. And we feel that a Swedish original movie poster of RIO BRAVO will not be a common place item in too many collections!!
This poster is certainly an excellent addition to any original movie poster collection.
