Dracula Has Risen From The Grave Poster

A rare double-sided (28"x 38") US "1-Sheet" International style poster for the Hammer horror film "Dracula Has Risen From The Grave" (1969).

This poster is believed to be an example of an early experimentation with double-sided posters being used for backlit projection (the process designed to enhance the experience of the viewing public). The poster is printed on a form of plastic NOT paper. It is printed to slightly smaller dimensions than the conventional US 1-Sheet & lacks the normal lower rim text (image of the standard US 1-Sheet shown for comparison courtesy of emovieposter). Unlike the majority of usual paper US 1-Sheets, this poster is not folded.

There is some slight yellowing to the left/right rims with some fraying to the left rim, possibly due to the heat of the back lighting causing brittleness. The process of developing successful double-sided posters almost certainly involved a series of further refinements over the years. There are two small tears: a 2" tear to the upper left rim & a 1" tear to bottom left rim.

This is a rare Hammer poster & a fascinating example of technological innovation & the evolution of cinema poster display. The reverse image of the poster shows the radical comparison with all other US 1-Sheet posters which were single-sided.

NB. A supplementary P&P charge will be required for overseas buyers.
