Please consider that the vast majority of vintage movie posters have been used, and their condition varies. As our head of collections once told us when we mentioned the border pinholes and small folding tears,
“Of course there are going to be small defects, these posters worked for a living!”
“The Birds” and “Joy in the Morning” are in a VERY FINE condition.
This means that the poster itself has hardly any fold lines or frayed edges and tears. At most the visible remnants of tape on the corners of the poster make it a visibly used poster. A poster in this grade can exhibit slight signs of use, but no significant wear. Acceptable flaws might include border pinholes, minor edge dings, light edge creases, and very minor wear along fold lines.
The other vintage movie posters are in a GOOD / FINE condition. This grade allows for a modest accumulation of flaws, including small pieces of tape, light wear and color loss along the fold lines, a dozen pinholes in the periphery of the poster, minor surface soiling, minor border wear including small chip of paper loss in the borders, and minor creasing in the image area. poster showing light, normal wear; used but not abused.

The Birds – Alfred Hitchcock
‘The Birds” is a 1963 American horror-thriller, produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The film stars Tippi Hedren in her screen debut, who plays a wealthy San Francisco socialite pursuing a potential boyfriend (Rod Taylor) to a small Northern California town. The film slowly takes a turn for the bizarre when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people.
Since its release, many consider The Birds the last great Hitchcock film, or at least the last of his more conventional “Hitchcockian” films. The Birds is an immensely entertaining one in any case, made by a filmmaker who knew better than most the power and possibilities of cinema’s horrific tension. This vintage Hitchcock movie poster is a true gem in our collection!

“Stiletto” (1969) is an American crime film directed by Bernard L. Kowalski and starring Alex Cord, based on the novel Stiletto by Harold Robbins. Cord plays a rich, jet-setting playboy who lead as double life as a professional Mafia hitman.
Kowalski and Robbins maintained a lucrative relationship at the time. One wrote a somewhat sleazy book and the other immediately released a film adaptation with the promise of showing a story full of sex and glamour that was therefore banned on TV. Hence the beautiful poster that actually was more stylish than the film itself.
Dimensions: 104 cm x 68 cm.
“The Adventurers” is a 1970 American adventure drama film directed, produced, and co-written by Lewis Gilbert. It stars Charles Aznavour and Candice Bergen. The wealthy playboy son of an assassinated South American diplomat discovers that his father was really murdered on orders of the corrupt president of the country.

Dimensions: 91 cm x 45,50 cm.
Three the Hard way
“Three the hard way” is a 1974 action blaxploitation film directed by Gordon Parks Jr., and starring Fred Williamson, Jim Brown and Jim Kelly.
The film belongs to the blaxploitation genre, in which the black culture and viewer were first seen as a potential viewer and sales market. However, the films were written and directed by mostly white film bosses and thus became a mix of stereotypes. At the same time, the films consisted for the first time of an all-black cast portrayed as heroes rather than victims or villains. Similarly in “Three the hard way”, where three martial-arts specialists have to prevent white supremacists from tainting the U.S. water supply with a toxin that’s only harmful to black people.
