THE CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF Original 1961 Movie Poster, 40x60, C7.5 Very Fine   THE CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF Original 1961 Movie Poster, 40x60, C7.5 Very Fine

This is the Original (1sh) 1961 movie poster THE CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF. To promote this movie when it was released in 1961. It is not a reprint nor a reproduction.

The movie stars CLIFFORD EVANS, OLIVER REED, JUSTIN WALTERS , YVONNE ROMAIN, CATHERINE FELLER, and ANTHONY DAWSON. It was directed by Terence Fisher. The artwork is by Joseph Smith. This unrestored movie poster is rolled and measures 40" x 60" This size is a little larger than the standard One Sheet size of 27" x 41". This original movie poster has never been Folded.

This original movie poster is graded C7.5 Very Fine Minus. 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.

One could argue that the poster should be graded a C. 7 Fine/Very Fine, a tad below the C7.5 we have assigned. That said, we note some flaws not noted above.

There is missing paper (about 1/2) at the left top corner tip. The borders, particularly at the top and top right, has aging, i. The reverse also has browning tape possible and definitely tape residue. Due to the poster being on medium stock paper, as opposed to normal thinner stock paper as on most One Sheets, the flaws on the reverse do not show through to the front of the poster. On the good side, there is no loss of color and only that 1/2 loss of paper at the top left corner.

Some pin holes may represent minute loss of paper. In addition, the main image is fantastic. Even the pin hole at the top left in the image area, and the creasing and minor surface scratches in the image area are not obtrusive i. Not readily noticeable even at a viewing distance in good part because of the (darkish) coloring - and solid coloring - of the poster's background and images. The poster has a low to low/medium gloss. All said, it is the excellent condition of the main image that we feel drives this poster to a C7.5. It could certainly use restoration and maybe even linen backing. If you would be interested in this poster and having it restored/linen backed, just let us know. We can refer you to one or both of the two professional restoration companies that we use, which have delivered us superior restorations at reasonable prices. If not, we also believe that a majority of the flaws that occur along the borders can be greatly alleviated, if not eliminated, by proper and professional framing, matting, and backing. This poster has a very presentable appearance with excellent detail of the images and rich, solid, colors exhibiting a superb horror atmosphere and appearance with a pristine-like background and main image. We believe that the original 1961 movie poster THE CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF has excellent value and investment value. This movie is generally not thought of when one speaks of all the US made sci-fi and horror movies made in the 1950s and 1960s, possibly in part that this movie was a British release initially (released in May 1961 in UK and June 1961 in the US). Otherwise we would say that most of the 50s and 60s sci-fi and horror original movie posters always have great demand from fans and collectors alike, but since THE CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF may not be thought of in that tremendous group of sci-fi and horror posters, we also feel that this beautiful horror poster more than holds its' own. In addition, we feel that the larger size of this Rolled poster (no Fold Lines) at 40" x 60" - as oppose to the regular One Sheet size of 27" x 41" - makes this original movie poster a tad rarer than its counterparts at 27" x 41". In part because we did not see any other 40" x 60" versions of the 1961 THE CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF original movie poster out there, although they may surely exist. Please bear with my camera work as some of the settings I had set on the camera let in too much light; the last 3 phots give you a better idea of the depth and richness of the colors and images. If you have any questions, please let me know. I have been collecting original movie posters for over 40 years, and I understand that buyers, like myself, expect representations of items for sale that are accurate, complete, and truthful.
