This is an original Japanese poster printed in early 1960`s (almost 60 years ago!) for the promotion of Tom and Jerry film. Considering its age, it is in a fantastic/near-mint condition.
This poster was acquired by Japan Poster Shop, along with many other rare 1950-1970`s posters (all in excellent to near mint condition), from a Japanese supplier near Osaka. The posters were previously carefully stored in a warehouse belonging to an entrepreneur who used to own a cinema until the 1980`s (when it went bankrupt due to the rise in VHS video).
Tom and Jerry is an animation created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera in 1940. The cartoons always centre around the rivalry between Tom - a cat, and Jerry - a mouse. The loveable pair are as popular today as they were when they made their debut.
This poster is in an excellent / near-mint condition. Please refer to the imagery (both front and back) as this is the exact poster that is for sale.
It is almost 60 years old!
