Original Three-Sheet Poster (41x81) Folded Very Good Plus Condition

Original Warner Brothers U.S. three-sheet poster for the Morton DaCosta film of the Meredith Willson musical, THE MUSIC MAN (1962) starring Robert Preston, Shirley Jones, Buddy Hackett, and Hermione Gingold. This film is certainly one of the best film adaptations of a Broadway musical. The original Broadway production of THE MUSIC MAN opened at the Majestic Theater on December 19, 1957, won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1958, and ran for 1375 performances. Even though Robert Preston had never appeared in a musical before or even sang a note, the role turned out to be one of his most memorable performances, and he won the 1958 Tony Award for Best Actor in a musical. Preston repeated his role for the Warner Brothers film version opposite Shirley Jones. The film version preserved all of the charm of the stage hit. This three-sheet is an oversized poster which is printed on two separate panels. The poster was used in a theater and and was assembled as a three sheet when we got it. The glue that holds the top and bottom panels together appears to have been mucilage, and has crystallized over the years, allowing us to separate the two panels easily. This poster could be restored and would look great, we have no doubt at all. We have graded the poster as is in very good condition. It is dirty and has some stains from the glue. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. three sheet for this film.
