This is the Original (1sh) movie poster PLANET OF THE APES. To promote this movie when it was released in 1968. It is not a reprint nor a reproduction.The movie stars Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter , Maurice Evans, James Whitmore, James Daly, Linda Harrison, Robert Gunner, Lou Wagner, Woodrow Parfrey, and Buck Kartalian. It was directed by Franklin J. This restored movie poster is Rolled. It measures 27" x 41". It has been linen backed and with the linen it measures 29" x 42.5".
Prior to restoration and linen backing, this 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 general signs of use such as slight fold separation and fold wear, pinholes, and very minor tears. The linen backing makes for a permanent seal on the restoration, a solid poster, which will also make framing and display that much easier. This poster has a very clean appearance and has solid and rich colors.
It is immediately ready to be framed and displayed with superior results. We believe that the original movie poster PLANET OF THE APES has excellent investment value. The movie is iconic and for me one of the classics. For those that love this movie, as I do, who has not quoted from it starting with Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!The excellent investment value is aided by the high grade (Very Fine/Near Mint) and condition of this poster.
