Important Added Info: Note that we have noticed that there appear to be three different versions of this poster, the only difference being the placement of Kurt Russell’s credit and the bottom white border. On this poster, he is listed separately on his own line and on the other posters he is listed at lower left in a not very prominent position. Some of the posters with the new credit placement were printed by the National Screen Service (and have the film title in the bottom border) and some were printed by Universal Studios (and lack the film title in the bottom border). All three styles are original first release posters.

Condition: good to very good. The poster has some creases scattered along portions of the vertical foldline. It has a vertical scratch at lower right next to some scuffing in the black background. It has some lighter creases scattered in various areas. There is light fold and border wear.
