"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"

RARE Gorgeous 1955 rerelease of this 1939 Iconic film's Three sheet movie poster.

NOTE:  Based on our research this Three sheet of the 1955 Re-release of "The Wizard of OZ" has never appeared on the market.  Although a Three sheet from the 1939 and 1949 HAVE sold before, this may be the first time this 1955 Three Sheet has ever surfaced!  AND, what makes this particularly unique is unlike all the other posters for this film, which have photos of the stars, this poster lithograph has terrific OZ Artwork that covers most of the bottom half.   And considering this is the larger than life Three Sheet, what a breathtaking presentation!   An amazing RARE find and especially exciting for us to have found it!  The first time we have even seen it in our 38 years collecting!   

CONDITION: Very Good-Excellent 100% Original UN-restored condition with amazing bright colors!  There are small pieces of cellophane tape on the verso. Amateur restoration has been done to the A in Wizard. This poster comes in two panels as originally printed.

Remember when it was one of the most anticipated annual events?  The family would gather around the TV,  typically around Christmas or Easter to watch the most magical film of all time. There were no cell phones, no On Demand, no YouTube , we all had to be sitting together when CBS aired "The Wizard of OZ" or we'd be devastated if we missed it.   Recapture that magic by owning this ORIGINAL Theater used movie poster for the 1955 theatrical release of this major motion picture. 

Note: The Wizard of OZ had three theatrical releases, 1939, 1949 and 1955 before the rights were sold to CBS and the exciting annual TV American family tradition began for 35 years until technology replaced the Magic with On Demand “programming”.  .    The 1949 and 1955 re-releases also capitalized on Judy Garland’s new super stardom and promoted her with images from her upcoming films at the time,  namely “Harvey Girls” and “A Star is Born”.

OZ was more than a movie.  It was a phenomenon that brought the family together once a year, without the required stimulants of cell phones, beer, pizza and chicken wings. The magic of OZ is all we needed. 

Condition:   Very good-Excellent  condition.  Comes in two sections (as most all three sheets).  Has fold wear .
