"Time has been powerless to erase the enduring magic of this wonderful 1939 film which has delighted generations of children, both young and old, for nearly eight decades"

On Saturday, March 23, 2019 an Original "Wizard of OZ" Half Sheet sold at auction for $108,000.  We don't have a 1939 half sheet, but we have the next best thing,  a 1949 re-release Half Sheet , with spectacular artwork and graphics that many collectors think surpasses the 1939 release half sheet.
  

Simply Gorgeous 1949 rerelease of this 1939 Iconic film's Half sheet movie poster.  And one of the best posters ever made for this epic fantasy film.  This masterpiece classic film poster is the one to own!

Extremely RARE ORIGINAL Wizard of Oz half sheet from the 1949 re-release that you're NOT likely to see again!  This is style A which was the superior style poster for this timeless classic.   The graphics on this are Stunning!  About the best of any Oz poster!  With great head-shots of all the main characters along with scenes from the film, makes this the ultimate find for Oz and vintage movie collectors!    It is Highly Unlikely you will ever see this original poster again, as it is only the 2nd time in 39 years collecting that we've owned it and one other has ever been sold, by a major auction house.

Note:  Like many of the significant movies, "The Wizard of OZ" had a number of theatrical re-releases.  These were only for films that were so popular, that they were re-released in theaters across the country for a short period after the original release.  The Wizard of Oz had three official theatrical releases, 1939, 1949 and 1955.  Some film like Casablanca and Frankenstein had more then Five theatrical re-releases.   Of course this was to meet the public's desire long before the ON-Demand technology revolution. 

As a matter of fact, The Wizard of OZ popularity was so overwhelming it became a national annual event.  every year the family would wait in anticipation for that ONCE a Year TV Showing of OZ.  And the family HAD to be together,  because there was no DVR or On Demand that we have today.    For those of us old enough to remember, OZ was an exciting  surreal experience !

This Oz treasure is in very good condition with border and fold  wear and small tear on Ray Bolger (Scarecrow) face.  Also, has stenciling as this was used to celebrate the 25th (Silver) Anniversary in 1974, along with a censure stamp at left side.  HOWEVER, has particularly Bright colors (not faded as other we've seen) .  AND, all those minor issues will be addressed with professional restoration and paper-backing and this RARE never to be seen again Gem, will look Amazing!  All that said, this is a VERY RARE opportunity to own one of the most magnificent pieces of Cinematic History !  A must have for the Oz, Classic Hollywood or Judy Garland collector! 


NOTE: we are sending for restoration and paper-backing and expect it to be complete by mid April.  But, there's a good chance it will be sold to a very lucky OZ collector by then, maybe to YOU!
