This is an ORIGINAL Half-Sheet MOVIE POSTER - NOT A REPRODUCTION ! It was created for use in a theatre to promote the engagement of this Motion Picture in 1970!
This approx. 22x28" Movie Item:
THE CHRISTINE JORGENSEN STORY ~ U.S. Half-Sheet Poster NSS# 70/209 -~ UNITED ARTISTS ~ 1970
This RARE SIZE / RARE TITLE exploitation poster is in excellent condition. With light edge and surface wear ; an approx. 2" vertical tear in the bottom center (white) edge, with no paper loss - arrested on the back with a small piece of archival tape ; several light surface creases ; a studio-applied photo sticker of a little boy in a dress appears to replace a photo of the same boy without the dress, with some bubbling and light rubbing on the label. The poster has always been ROLLED or stored flat - NEVER FOLDED. With bright colors and sharp images, it's printed on heavy glossy poster stock.
Big studio UNITED ARTISTS chose to go the delightfully campy, Ed Wood / GLEN OR GLENDA - route to promote this respectful and generally-admired movie bio of the famous, TRANSSEXUAL title character. The poster includes photos of hunky star JOHN HANSEN as a man, uncomfortably kissing a woman and as a woman, tenatively kissing a man. Also shown is HANSEN , still looking pretty hunky, in a dress and wig and a photo of a little boy in a dress. Photos are accompanied by straightforward captions:
"Sex with a woman was strange and impossible."
"Dresses and dolls were my world as a boy."
"But I had to make it as a woman. There was no return."
"Could I ever love a woman physically?"
Based on the book by CHRISTINE JORGENSEN Directed by IRVING RAPPER
"DID THE SURGEON'S KNIFE MAKE ME A WOMAN OR A FREAK?"
"THE FIRST MAN TO BECOME A WOMAN."
The accompanying photo shows this actual item. There's some light-glare across the right side of the accompanying photo that's not on the actual poster, which is consistently bright from top to bottom. Additional and / or larger photos are usually available by email request, with 24 hours notice. Additional photos may be included to show detail close-ups of this same item. Some online photo services may impose their logo at the bottom righthand corner which doesn't appear on the actual item. There may be clips visible in the photos, variously at the four corners and the top and/or bottom center edges. These are not a flaw in or a part of this item. The words "Percepto Sample Image" which may appear on some photos do not appear on the actual item. All rights reserved for original photos, artwork and text.
