The poster has 3 vertical and 3 horizontal folds. Most original movie posters pre-1985 are Folded. This is not considered a flaw or a defect. This original movie poster is graded C8.5, Very Fine to 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. It is difficult to find any pre-1985 original movie posters graded C10 (Mint). This original movie poster is immediately ready for framing and display.
One might want to have it linen backed, but that is personal preference and is not essential for this poster to exhibit a tremendous and stunning appearance once framed and displayed. The colors are amazingly rich and strong.The images of Eastwood, Cleef, and Wallach are "spot on", and move one directly to thoughts of the movie and our favorite scenes and dialogue. Any minor flaws such as the extra creasing at some cross folds and slight bumps in the poster can be alleviated with a professional framing. That said, the flaws are not noticeable upon looking at the poster unless one does a very close inspection. The poster is a full bleed, meaning its images go all the way to the edges of the poster, there is no border.
Given the very fine to near mint condition of the poster, and its truly stunning appearance along with the popularity of both this poster in any format and the movie, we believe that this original French Grande of THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY has amazingly strong investment value. Its value will continue to grow.
