Once upon a Time in the West
AT the estate sale of a California movie lover I bought this lovely "Once upon a time in the West" poster. Good condition, never folded but with a few creases.
I did some research and found that the film was released in 1968, but re-issued in 1980. It's a very striking poster and I know it's very collectible so I was wary of it's authenticity. Comparing the 1968 and 1980 versions, I noticed that mine had the 'M for Mature' rating and I was assuming that was recent, but was basing that on the 'M for Mature' on video games. According to WIkipedia, the 'M' rating was discontinued in favor of 'GP' (then 'PG') in 1970 which fits in nicely with my poster being the original release.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_Picture_Association_of_America_film_rating_system#From_M_to_GP_to_PG
SO, I'm off to get it linen backed and then framed.

I also bought an album with about 50 B&W photo stills of Brigite Bardot, some weird "sex in the cinema" type photo books and a slide projector. win win!

British Quad which has been folded just the right amount of times and shoved under one of the corners to stop the place from wobbling.
