The poster measures 41″ tall X 27″ across. Overall condition is very good to excellent for a poster over 80 years old! I am not a movie poster expert, so please ask questions as to condition if you have them. This poster has been stored folded, and has creases from that. It is shown in the photos. At the top two corners and bottom left corner there are some pinprick holes and a couple of small tears from when they were hung up. The bottom right has a few little pinprick holes. The bottom corners have some very slight bends, but no creases. There are some very small worn spots and a tiny tear where the creases in the poster are. These are very small and minor. There is a small 1/2″ tear in the center crease by the P in Cleopatra. There is also another very small tear along the crease under the word Warren. There are some small creases/tears along the left side top of the poster. These are also shown in the photos. There are a couple of light stains, such as the bottom right corner where the color is slightly different. The back also shows some light soiling and discoloration from dirt over time. You can see all of these flaws in the photos if you look closely and zoom in. There may be other minor areas of wear not mentioned, so please look closely in the photos.
