I have several vintage three sheets that I like to display, so I bought this flip frame from Spotlight Displays/Robert to rotate them in. The Mockingbird three sheet was printed a tad shorter than the full 84” thus the extra space for reg size ones plus I got it a tad bigger to account for linen borders.
I see...
Suggestion: Add some sort of white paper that comes close to matching the print stock color, to fill the void at the bottom
Thought of it, but it doesn't really bother me...plus will prob switch it out with another one. Might do Goldfinger next.

If you're ever in NYC, you should make an appointment to go by Metropolis Collectibles in Union Square - he's got some of the rarest posters in the world on display and in his collection - mostly classic Universal horror and serials. You'd really appreciate it.
Yep it is, otherwise would be impossible to display, plus needed minor resto work.

I've heard of that place, will definitely check it out if I get out there.

Love that Starry Night. :clap: Gonna pick up one of these Nick Smith prints someday.

Meanwhile, I picked up a couple of these Faile beauties. Been ISO these prints for a long time.
