1953 'The Joe Louis Story' three-sheet movie poster (40" x 78")
An original large format movie poster for 'The Joe Louis Story', released by United Artists in 1953. This is a seldom seen 3-sheet poster measuring a huge 40 x 78". Features beautiful mid-century artwork and attractive color. The poster is in fair-good condition with its considerable size making it inherently fragile. There is an eight inch tear to the bottom right corner that has been taped from behind. A smaller tear towards the top of the poster has also been taped to the reverse. Several small holes/tears scattered throughout. Some separation can be found along the fold lines/intersections. The largest of these is 4" in length. The poster would benefit from linen backing. Very rare in this size.
