French Movie Poster - Petite Affichette

Sorry for the long break between posts, business travel and other real world issues were at the fore, but back now.

This is a very cool poster. It is an original release poster from France, size is 60x80 cm (23x31 in), a size known as "Petite Affichette".

The artist for this poster was a gentleman named Boris Grinsson (1907-1999), who provided the artwork for LOTS of French film posters, over 2000 I believe. There is a book available on his poster art from French Amazon, some of the most striking French posters ever made were done by M. Grinsson.
