This poster is not a modern reproduction and nor is it Video/DVD-related. A very nice-condition Finnish movie poster for the 1941 movie A WOMEN'S FACE starring Joan Crawford, Melvyn Douglas & Conrad Veidt. The film premiered in Finland in March 1945 with no further theatrical re-release. Slightly outside the usual, standard Finnish A2, measuring approximately 16. Printed by Kirjapaino Oy, no artist signature.I have been unable to locate another example of this poster to compare it with and so I hesitate to describe it emphatically as a first-screening poster. It seems to me to be better quality than wartime standard but on the other hand if it was a film which was heavily promoted by the studio (MGM movie-posters tend to be better quality than those of other distributors in Finland) then it could well be. Whatever the case it is definitely a contemporary movie poster and an extremely rare item. No pinholes or other obvious signs of mounting - an unmounted example. In astonishingly clean condition, no nicks or tears. The chief condition issue with this beautiful poster is that it has been both folded and then stored carelessly so is noticeably rippled at the moment.
The folds may resolve under glass or with linen backing. As well as describing the condition of our posters meticulously, we also take great care to research them and establish and provide accurate information concerning dates of issue, theatrical runs etc. We are always happy to answer any questions about our listings.
We describe all noticeable faults in our posters but for best appreciation of condition please examine the high-resolution images which accompany the listing. Safely packed in acid-free paper and only the sturdiest tubes used. Will re-fold previously folded posters and send flat as required by customer.
