Kiss Before Dying, A (1956)



    27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm]


    Good to Very Good, linen backed. Before linen backing, there were border tears, minor paper loss and scuffs and stains. There was paper loss on the man's right hand and a tiny paper loss in his eye at the cross-fold. A tear at top left from the white border just above the word 'girl' and from the top central fold and far right border tear was also repaired. Also paper loss at the bottom right corner. Restoration was carried to correct these defects and to the fold-lines. The poster was well backed and now displays well but you can still see signs of the original defects.


    OSWALD, Gerd


    "It was so easy to kiss him... So easy to love him... So hard to stop!"; "Girl by girl... Caress by caress... He fell deeper in love - deeper in trouble - until he found this terrifying way out..."; "So much in love... So deep in terror."; "It happened with every girl he met! It was so easy for him to fall in love... So easy to go one kiss too far... So easy to find a way out - MURDER!"; "Some secrets can't be kept... they have to be buried!"; "From the novel by Ira Levin". A ruthless college student played by handsome Robert Wagner resorts to murder in a futile attempt to marry an heiress. Remade in 1991 with Matt Dillon and Sean Young, Gerd Oswald's sleazy 1956 version is far superior.

Linen Backing Specialists

We restore and linen back film posters.

We can linen back any posters you see on our website you like or your own movie poster.

A vast majority of pre-1980's movie posters were issued folded by the studios. Linen-backing achieves the effect of flattening the folds as well as making the poster more visually alluring, whilst conserving and preserving the piece.

By linen backing these posters, the folds and minor defects become virtually undetectable at normal viewing distance.
