This magnificent poster, featuring artwork by Frank McCarthy, has received partial restoration to fold wear and separations, pinholes into the interior, chips in the left border, and border tears. Some of the pinholes are torn and a few of the tears extend into the image area. There was a large tear from the left border into Richard Attenborough's leg. Some of these issues may still be visible, as well as a slight bit of unaddressed writing bleedthrough and a folded back tear in the image background. Fine+on Linen.
