Condition Report

Paper-backed and conservation framed with UV plexiglass

Very good condition, with the colours remaining very bright. Restoration to centre fold, creasing around the fold and minor surface abrasions. There are some black marks in the background of the poster, which happened during the printing process.


The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.

Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

This 1950 Argentine film was directed by León Klimovsky. Following the small financial success of the exploitation film She Shoulda Said 'No'! in 1949, another ethical film about the use of marijuana, it was decided to import this Argentine film after it was screened at the 1951 Cannes Film Festival.
