About the Poster: This is the oversize, unlined poster for the 1980 film "Elephant Man" by David Lynch. In "Elephant Man", "A Victorian surgeon rescues a heavily disfigured man who is mistreated while scraping a living as a side-show freak. Behind his monstrous facade, there is revealed a person of intelligence and sensitivity." (Source : IMDB) 
The film was based "on the true story of Joseph Merrick (called John Merrick in the film), a severely deformed man in 19th century London. The film was directed by David Lynch and stars John Hurt, Anthony Hopkins, Anne Bancroft, John Gielgud, Wendy Hiller, Michael Elphick, Hannah Gordon, and Freddie Jones.

The screenplay was adapted by Lynch, Christopher De Vore, and Eric Bergren from the books The Elephant Man and Other Reminiscences (1923) by Sir Frederick Treves and The Elephant Man: A Study in Human Dignity by Ashley Montagu. It was shot in black and white.

"Elephant Man" was a critical and commercial success, and received eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture in 1980." (Source : Wikipedia)
The poster is unlined and folded.  We think it would look striking in a home theatre or living room!
