Love in the Afternoon (1957)



    27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm]


    Good to Very Good, linen backed. Prior to restoration and linen backing the poster was in quite fragile condition, with paper loss at the crossfolds, some separation and yellowing in the white areas. The poster was extensively cleaned prior to careful restoration to the folds and border areas and now displays very well, but you can still see signs of the restoration work. However, the vast majority of collectors would be very happy to hang this great poster on their wall!


    WILDER, Billy


    Poster artist: Saul Bass. "Love is a game any number can play...especially in the afternoon..."; "In any other any other time...the American millionaire would have known she was only pretending to be as experienced as he was... this was the afternoon!". A middle-aged playboy (Gary Cooper) becomes fascinated by the daughter (Audrey Hepburn at her most delightful) of a private detective (Maurice Chevalier) who has been hired to entrap him with the wife of a client. The iconic poster design by Saul Bass, with it's subtle simplicity and colourful typset is perfectly attuned to the tone of Billy Wilder's underrated 1957 classic.

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.
