This is a stunning poster with artwork by Renato Casaro, which will look simply amazing framed! This is a simply beautiful poster and a must for all Queen and Flash Gordon fans.
It is clear that this poster (initially supplied flat to the cinema) has been rolled for many years, with very light wavy creasing from the rolling process.

And a really lovely example of this rare poster.The item "Queen / Freddie Mercury / Flash Gordon Japanese 1981 original film poster rare" is in sale since Tuesday, August 17, 2021.
