Original Vintage Movie Poster one sheet (27x41")
Extremely Scarce vintage poster for this highly popular animated classic. Casper was created in the late 1930s by Seymour Reit and Joe Oriolo. Paramount started Casper the Friendly Ghost series in 1950, and ran the theatrical releases until the summer of 1959. There is hardly a baby-boomer today that does not, as a child, remember "Casper the Friendly Ghost".Casper (Paramount, 1950). Stock One Sheet (27" X 41"). Animated.
After Max and Dave Fleischer were forced out of Paramount, the only noteworthy character the studio developed was Casper the Friendly Ghost. Other than Boo Moon, a 3-D short from 1953, this is the only color one sheet, and the only stock sheet to feature the character by himself!
This is the first time we have acquired this poster in 25 years of collecting. It is not surprising this poster often sells for over $3000 at auction and even more from large dealers.
Condition: Very good, has some minor pinholes on corner area, but does not detract from the beauty and color of this very rare masterpiece movie poster art. This gem has been professioanlly linen backed.
