Before green screen, high definition, and multi million dollar budgets, movies were campy and shall we say, a little hokey. We love them. Since we are all about old school at Antique Archaeology, we thought we ought to pay some worthy attention to the films that kept it real in the mid-60s with screen kings like Mickey Rooney and Elvis Presley.
We have eight vintage movie posters on hand that are looking to belong in a movie buff’s cinematic collection and appreciated for many years to come. Due to their delicate condition, each movie poster has been stored and photographed in plastic with protective corners. Each poster will be shipped rolled in a cardboard tube.
Below are the eight posters available while supplies lasts:
