Original, vintage 'Teenage Doll' 1957 US film poster, Roger Corman, exploitation

Teenage Doll is a 1957 film noir directed by Roger Corman, starring June Kenney and John Brinkley. The Black Widows, a teenage girl gang, find one of their number killed; they suspect Barbara, sometime girlfriend of the leader of rival gang the Vandals. As the gangs prepare for a rumble, we glimpse the members' home lives, exaggerating every type of family dysfunction. One writer called it Corman's "most impressive teen flick".

It is a US Insert, measuring 14 x 36", and is paper backed, ready for framing. 

Teenage Doll was in was in good condition before paper backing. the poster was folded, and although it has been flattened in the backing and cleaning process, the folds are still visible. There is some fading of the background. The portrait of the girl is stunning.  

All our film posters are original, and most have been used in cinemas. This means that they may show signs of use, including fading, creasing, holes and staining. We endeavor to list these if they are significant, but there may be minor, age -related wear that is not detailed. Posters from this era were printed onto cheap paper, which over time can become brittle and discolored. Folding the paper caused further damage, and the posters may have split along the fold lines, along with damage caused by tape and drawing pin holes. Inserts, such as this poster, are on a thicker stock paper. During the backing process, the poster is cleaned to remove dirt and marks, where possible, and de-acidified to neutralize the paper and prevent further decay. The poster is pasted onto a sheet of Masa paper, which flattens it, fixes tears, prevents further damage and brings the wonderful artwork back to life.  

The film poster presents very well, and is ready for framing. It will be mailed rolled in a cardboard tube.
