£1,995.00

Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, the classic 1959 Clyde Geronimi Walt Disney family animated animation cartoon romantic fairy-tale fantasy musical feature (“Ablaze With Wonders!”; “Wondrous to see… Glorious to hear… A magnificent new motion picture!”; “Wondrous to see… Glorious to hear… after six years in production A magnificent NEW motion picture!”; “One of the world’s best loved stories… becomes Walt Disney‘s Newest Most Wonderful Motion Picture!”) featuring the voices of Mary Costa (in the title role as Sleeping Beauty/Princess Aurora), Bill Shirley (as Prince Phillip), Eleanor Audley (as Maleficent), Verna Felton, and Barbara Luddy
Note that the poster measures 41″ x 84″, not 41″ x 81″. This was something that Disney was experimenting with at this time, and several titles were made that size. The experiment was likely abandoned due to complaints by movie theaters that put the posters into three-sheet frames, and these slightly oversized posters didn’t fit! Also note that this three-sheet was printed in 2 sections designed to overlap. Finally, note that the theater that used this poster glued the pieces together before putting them on display (this is typical of many actual theater-used posters in multiple pieces).
Condition: Very Good/Fine. The theater that used this poster glued the pieces together before putting them on display (this is typical of many actual theater-used posters in multiple pieces). There were many pinholes around the edges and a few tape repairs on the back. There was some darkening on the back of the part of the poster that was on the outside when it was fully folded. There were some creases and several tears along the folds that were on the outside when the poster was fully folded. There were some creases, smudges, and tiny tears on some folds, and some tiny paper loss at some crossfolds. The poster has since been restored onto linen and none of these issues are visible, such is the quality of the restoration and looks near as damn it!
