IMPORTANT NOTICE! We are taking a VERY rare vacation from September 22 through October 7. We wanted to have auctions that run during the last of the time we are closed, which end on October 9 (the day after we return), so we are starting this auction on September 29, so that it ends October 9. THAT MEANS WE WILL BE CLOSED DURING THE FIRST EIGHT DAYS OF THIS AUCTION, AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ANSWER ANY E-MAILS OR PHONE CALLS ABOUT THIS ITEM. We WILL return to our office on October 8, and will reply to any questions we received while we were closed at that time. Of course, we will be completely able to send all of these items, beginning October 10, the day after the close. If you have a question about this item, please do not bid on it until October 8, but if you have no questions, it is fine for you to bid on it anytime! Thank you for your understanding of our need to take a rare vacation! IMPORTANT! This item

Note: "emovieposter" is only on our digital image, NOT on the actual item. Also, we are changing our photography setup! Images with a solid black background are ones that were photographed on our new black metal background. We now hold the posters in place with magnets (so we do not have to attach the poster to the wall in any way), which are small and round and resemble "push pins", but we assure you they are NOT! If an image has a black background, know that the odd circles in the edges of the item are magnets that hold it in place, and are NOT a defect! An Original Vintage Theater-Used Folded English One-Sheet Movie Poster (measures approximately 27" x 40") from Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities, the 1958 Ralph Thomas English French Revolutionary War melodrama (based on the novel by Charles Dickens) starring Dirk Bogarde, Dorothy Tutin, Cecil Parker, Stephen Murray, and Paul Guers
Important Added Info: Note that this is a rare "country of origin" poster for this English movie! Also note that this English one-sheet measures approximately 27" x 40" and is folded.
Overall Condition: very good or better.
Want to know more about the condition of this item? This poster is in "very good or better" condition! It likely has some minor defects, which are likely to be very noticeable in our "large" or "super-sized" images that you can click on from our small image at right (the extent of the minor defects determines whether it is in "very good" or "very good to fine" or "fine" condition; we never grade any item over "fine" condition). We feel that this poster would be acceptable to most collectors, but if you are condition conscious (or if you would be botd by small defects that are not easily discernable from our larger images) then you should not bid on this poster. If you are like most collectors, and are forgiving of minor defects, then we think you will likely be happy with all items we grade "very good or better"! English one-sheets (from the 1950s and earlier) measure very close to U.S. one-sheets (approximately 27" x 40") and they are among the rarest of all movie posters! Unlike almost every European country (from which you can find just about every poster from the 1950s on), it is next-to-impossible to find or...
