Vintage original 30 x 40" (75 x 100 cm.) quad poster, UK. Stephen Rea, Forrest Whitaker, Jaye Davidson, dir: Neil Jordan; Polygram.

Folded, with minor light marginal creasing, NEAR FINE.

Vintage original 30 x 40" (76 x 102 cm.) quad poster, UK. Donald Pleasance, Lionel Stander,Francoise Dorleac, dir: Roman Polanski; Compton Films. Polanski's third feature, a masterpiece of surreal black comedy -- a murderous gangster invades the island home of an already-dysfunctional married couple, with hilarious and horrifying results.
JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS (1963) $850.00 SOLD
Vintage original 29 x 39" (74 x 100 cm.) quad poster, UK. Todd Armstrong, Nancy Kovack, dir: Don Chaffey; Columbia. This film was a co-production of the US and the UK, so this poster is from one of its two countries of origin. With the unique special effects of Ray Harryhausen, and the memorable score of Bernard Herrmann, this has always qualified as one of the classic fantasy films.
THIS ISLAND EARTH (1955) $6,850.00 SOLD
Vintage original 40 x 30" (100 x 75 cm.) poster, USA. Jeff Morrow, Faith Domergue, Rex Reason, Lance Fuller, Russell Johnson, dir: Joseph M. Newman, Jack Arnold: Universal. One of the top science fiction classics of the 1950s. Here is a very rare poster indeed.
TRAVELLING PLAYERS, THE [O THIASOS] (1975; 1976 first UK release) $1,000.00 SOLD
Vintage original 30 x 40" (76 x 102 cm.) maquette artwork painting, and 30 x 40" (76 x 102 cm.) quad poster, UK. Eva Kotamanidou, Vangelis Kazan, dir: Theo Angelopoulos; Artificial Eye. Angelouolos' staggering retelling of the story of Electra, set in 20th-century Greece between the years 1939 and 1952. The film is composed of long, single, unbroken takes (many of them 10-minutes long or even longer), and even a film as stylistically complex as Hitchcock's Rope is, by comparison, simple.
UNDERWORLD, U.S.A. (1960) $300.00 SOLD
Vintage original 30 x 40" (75 x 100 cm.) quad poster, UK. Cliff Robertson, Dolores Dorn, Beatrice Kay, dir: Sam Fuller; Columbia. This gangster revenge film (Robertson sets out to systematically kill all the thugs who had once murdered his father -- and the image of violence at bottom right echoes the silhouette staging of his father's killing) is one of the great films of the great Samuel Fuller.
