Ayako - An Innocent Witch (1965)
Small (13" x 28") Italian Locandina
Good condition. Horizontal fold as issued. Small staple holes in just outside the boarder design. The poster has a tax stamp on the right side. It was common practice for Belgian and Italian posters of this period to be stamp on the front, so that the authorities could easily tell if the local cinema had paid its taxes for the film. A characteristic of its authenticity and use outside the theatre to advertise the film.
