This size poster was designed for use in cabinets inside the cinemas. They were produced on thicker paper stock compared with the regular posters, and few were printed. Owing to their cost, they stopped being produced in the 1980s.

This wonderful musical was a remake of the 1941 film The Philadelphia Story, starring Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly and Louis Armstrong. The film has a timeless soundtrack by Cole Porter, including High Society, Who Wants to be a Millionaire and Now You Has Jazz.
