ONLY ORIGINAL KNOWN TO EXIST! Here is simply one of the most interesting pieces of Walt Disney movie poster advertising art ever released by a Hollywood studio! It's also one of the rarest too, as this is the single only known surviving example.An extraordinarily rare size issued by the major studios thru the National Screen Service [or NSS]. Box Office Cards were made to hang above the ticket counter. They all measure approximately 4 and 3/4 inches by 28 inches. NSS issued this size after World War II, starting in 1948, when this RKO card was issued. The size became discontinued about a decade later. Artwork unique to this size was rendered to for all the movies offered in this format.
Disney art fills this little gem, which deserves a citation for the amazing artistry demonstrated on the final product. The images of all the characters on this poster are STRONG! These box office cards typically carry much stronger artwork than the larger counterparts issued by the NSS.
This "Pinocchio" card is a prime example. Take a good look at the art and judge for yourself at how effective it is at creating a lasting impression.
It's pretty remarkable; especially considering this is a unique 1-of-a-kind poster that has never been reproduced! You won't find another. I obtained this in a collection of 99 cards found in an old theater back in the late 1980s. I've possessed this card for over three decades now, and, after diligently looking out for them, I've NEVER seen any other collection of these 1940's box office cards surface. I've never even seen one individual card surface on any other 1940's title.
A few (less than a dozen) different mid-1950's cards have made their way into some auctions, but NO 1940's or early'50's examples. It's the rarest size of all the studio issued paper from that period. One of the reasons for the extreme rarity is the fact that these cards are hand-processed serigraphs.
Serigraphs are very expensive to make, as each is individually silk-screened. A serigraph is considered a "fine art" process and is not often used for advertisements. Andy Warhol was known for issuing serigraphs. If you're an advanced collector, and you want something special to add to your Hollywood art or classic animation collection, this would make a proud addition. If you want a true 1-of-a-kind art piece that's also a vintage authorized studio issued item - you just found it!THIS POSTER WILL BE PROFESSIONALLY PACKAGED. It can crash regardless of any decision you make and can even crash regardless of any decision made by the company related to the stock - Leaving you with a near worthless piece of paper that won't inspire anyone! The magnificence of art and historic documents have an inherent value that relates to civilization and society. Please write with any questions.
