Rtwork on the Window Card is by Frank McCarthy. This unrestored Window Card comes Flat, and measures 14" x 22". It will be mailed Flat. This Window Card was never Folded. This original Window Card is graded C8, Very Fine.
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. The 1.5 tear at the top and the mild toning generally prevent a C8.5 Very Fine to Near Mint grading. Proper framing of the Window Card should help to alleviate the flaws that occur along the borders (which are just about all of the flaws), including that tear. A "Snipe" is a piece of paper that the theatre or movie house would attach to top blank 4" to 5.5" space at the top of the Window Card, with that piece of paper usually indicating the dates and times of the showings of the movie, and sometimes including the name of the Theatre. In the case of this Window Card of WHERE EAGLES DARE, the snipe has come loose but can easily be re-attached or otherwise included in the blank space upon proper framing of the Window Card.We feel that the original 1968 Window Card WHERE EAGLES DARE has very good investment value. The movie is (at least to me) iconic and is shown on a somewhat regular basis on TV, particularly around the time of Memorial Day. Fans of war movies, now and in the future, should certainly appreciate the incredible action and acting in this superior movie, thus continuing to drive demand for movie memorabilia for WHERE EAGLES DARE It is certainly my favorite war movie - not that this helps investment value :!
The beginning of the movie, with that driving soundtrack as the British plane flies into and over Germany, is just too good. If you have any questions, please let me know.
