Original RKO Style B Half Sheet Poster (22x28). Folded. Good Condition.

Original RKO Style B Half Sheet Poster (22x28) for the Ernest B. Schoedsack adventure fantasy, MIGHTY JOE YOUNG (1949) starring Terry Moore, Ben Johnson, and Robert Armstrong. The movie was produced by John Ford. This is perhaps the most charming of all the "great apes films and certainly has the best special effects. Willis O'Brien's and Ray Harryhausen's stop action animation made Mighty Joe Young move realistically with incredible facial motions. This is the story of a girl who raises a gorilla from infancy in the wilds of Africa. She is wooed and wowed by an American showman, played by Armstrong who was also in KING KONG (1933). Eventually he brings the girl and the gorilla back to America to star in a nightclub act. The film won the Oscar for Best Special Effects, including the famous scene where Mighty Joe holds up a stage with Moore playing a grand piano. This original half sheet poster is folded and in good condition only. It would be a perfect candidate for restoration and either linen or paper-backing. The probems that is has are easily remedied.
