Note that this is a “country of origin” poster for this partially French movie! Also note that there is a tiny “5/60 Depot legal 60/2” with “26102” by that at the bottom of the poster. This means that this poster is from the first release in 1960, and that this is the second time the poster was printed.

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had small paper loss at some crossfolds and some creases, tears, and tiny paper loss on parts of some folds. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
