Purpose of use

The poster is intended to provide an illustration for a well known and significant film, and the purpose of the poster is to suggest something of the film's style. Of the various posters available this is the most appropriate, because unlike some others it is from the period of the film's initial release, and was widely distributed to promote the film.

This image is used on various websites, so use on Wikipedia does not make it significantly more accessible or visible than it already is. It does not detract from the original and is used for information purposes only.

For an article about a film, the original poster is arguably one of the most important images that could be included. Various posters and artwork have been produced over the years to publicise this film, however this is the original artwork, intended for wide distribution. As such it has historical significance to the article.
