Original USA HALF Sheet STYLE B poster on PAPER BACKING (acid free) for marketing in theaters in 1951, in GOOD+ to VERY GOOD condition. Prior to paper backing, all four white borders were trimmed, and now the poster measures 22x27. The poster had creases, scuffs, and tiny paper loss at folds. A really talented restorer replaced the missing borders, and recreated the small text in the bottom border. The poster displays very well.Exciting and colorful Sci-Fi imagery. Paper-backing is a very common form of restoration that can be used on card stock posters. It is the accepted conservative method preferred by professionals and longtime collectors. The poster has been professionally mounted onto a piece of high quality acid-free paper, not unsimilar to the acid-free cotton fabric used in the linen backing process. While similar to linenbacking, this process is typically reserved for items originally printed on thicker stock, such as inserts, half-sheets, lobby cards and window cards.
