1951 National Screen Service Standee

One more from the "wow, didn't know that existed!" category. This is an original release standee (who knew they made those back in 1951).

The art on this is based on the A-style half-sheet, or perhaps I should say that the half-sheet is based on this, since Alice is full figure here and not on the half-sheet.

This particular example is in pretty good shape considering it is a piece of 60 year old cardboard. There are a few paint marks (some one apparently cleaned their paint brushes on it - the nerve!), and I was ecstatic to find it at all, and have never seen another.
