The Graduate Original 40X60 Theatrical Poster

We recently acquired a small collection of large-format, vintage movie posters dating from the late 1960s and early 70s. We're not sure what theater they originally came from, but I would suspect it was was one of the last, large movies palaces here in the Philadelphia area, as only an urban theater would have needed these huge posters for display.

These posters are 40" by 60" and printed on heavy card stock. This size is now known as a "Bus Shelter" and used in major cities in the pre-fab metal shelters found at bus stops, but decades ago, the size would have been used in frames at large first-run theaters.

This is a poster for the 1972 re-release of Mike Nichols' classic "The Graduate". Better writers than myself have covered every aspect of this film, so we'll just say that it made the careers of everyone involved, by Dustin Hoffman to Simon & Garfunkel, who provided the music for the film. It was also so much of a success that it was back in threatres five years after it originally opened, and keep in mind that it was an era when hits like this could run for a year or more on their original release.

This is -I believe- the "B" style poster for the film. It's certainly the most desirable style for the film, with the classic "Are you trying to seduce me, Mrs Robinson?" image of in the center, the Oscars tag at the top and a nice, clean graphic layout.

Size: It's 40" by 60".

Condition: a couple of short, closed tears to the top, one small one to the bottom, slight wear to the edges, and a little foxing just above the bottom margin; nothing that couldn't be restored if you so chose. I'm pricing it taking the condition into consideration, and I'm confident that this is the cheapest large-format vintage poster for this film you'll find.
