But what about your secret Paris-based restorer?

In my 12 years of collecting, I have restored less than 10 posters, and it's only because I knew I would not be able to find the posters again and bought them in lesser condition.  Condition is really key for me, since I don't linenback.  A "Good" poster at Bruce's is not for me.

Another nice Martinati, for Treasure of the Sierra Madre (his artistic style was amazing and beautiful) but I would never know this was Bogie. (Or maybe it's not him?)   dontknow.gif

The other R65 "Kong 33" style is more rare and usually you have to pay a premium for it , unless you're lucky ;)

Tang, what does the '65RR look like? According to EMP, this is a probable '61RR:

I have picked up a few Italianos since this thread started.
I've posted them elsewhere on this forum, but this thread needs a bump...









and this 4fogli for Joe D'Amato's Papaya: Love Goddess of the Cannibals (1978)

Hi all. Recently pulled the trigger on a Godfather locandina on eBay despite my slight reservation about a relatively old poster (1972) being commonly available on the site.

I was pleased with what I got -- printing looks sharp and it was impressively yellowed ("felt" old), but my restorer thinks it could be a reprint.

Was wondering if anyone has had experience with this poster? I can't find much information online about Italian bootlegs.

First, welcome to the forum.  welcome1

Enjoy all the good people here.

And please post a pic or 2 of your poster. Would be great to see.

Why did your restorer think it was a repro/reprint? Did he mention specifics or certain things that caught his eye?

No, it was goposter -- they sold a 140x200 cm Italian Godfather poster (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Manifesto-Originale-Il-Padrino-Godfather-140x200-CM-Marlon-Brando-/331907505675) that got positive feedback and convinced me to overlook their relatively low feedback.

Thanks! Unfortunately I only took this one picture of the poster -- it's off getting framed (like I said, it looks pretty great regardless).

There's a light circular indent, about 2" in diameter, in the black portion of the poster that my restorer thought could have been from the equipment used to reprint the poster? I didn't press the issue and it's not really visible in the picture.
