Original Movie Posters to Trade

These posters are for trade purposes only and are not for sale. Please refer to my want list for things that are of interest.

1900-1919 1920-1929 1930-1945 1946-1964 1965-1979 1980-Present

1965 - 1979:

Rock and roll. Tune in, turn on, drop out. Vietnam. Watergate. All of these set the stage for the next great epoch in cinema history.

As the post-World War II baby boomers start finding their voices, the old ways of doing things, the "We always did it this way" status quo was the first thing to be questioned, then disposed of. French nouvelle vague filmmakers led the way in showing the rest of the world that there were new techniques, new stories, and new philosophies that could be explored via film. The studio system was all but dead, sent to its grave by television, and the independents moved in to fill the gap. Cinematic freedom not seen since the pre-Code days creates a renaissance of adult oriented filmmaking.

Photo Title/Description Price

PSYCHEDELICSEX KICKS - WILD HIPPIE ORGY (c. 1960s) - Clearly you'd have to be a pretty up-tight square not to groove on this original US one sheet. This poster nicely sums up the '60s - day-glo colors, sex freak outs, and stone grooves. Heck, the production company alone ("Pot Heads Experimental Films"?!?) is worth it!

Now, as to those wild hippie orgies...Where do I sign up?

Trade Only (T.O.)

AKAHIGE (aka RED BEARD) (1965) - Original Japanese release.

Akira Kurosawa's woefully underappreciated masterpiece. Honestly, I think it's his best film. Some folks are scared off by it's extended running time, but don't be, it as involving as any of his samurai movies. Heck, there's even a great bit of Judo @sswhoopin' for those who miss that sort of thing. Sadly, this was to be Toshiro Mifune's last collaboration with Kurosawa.

T.O.

ALPHAVILLE (1965) - Jean-Luc Godard's nouvelle vague science fiction classic features iconic heavy Eddie Constantine as detective Lemmy Caution.

Original release French petite.

T.O.

REPULSION (aka REPULSIONE) (1965) - Not just the best "Repulsion" poster, quite possibly one of the best movie posters ever printed. This original release Italian due has got it all - beautiful Catherine Deneuve, and colors to die for, all for Roman ("You're how old?") Polanski's breakthrough thriller.

Really adds a dramatic presence to any room.

T.O.

TATTOOED LIFE (aka IREZUMI ICHIDAI) (1965) - The perfect transition movie for Seijun Suzuki's career. Starting out as standard yakuza story, Suzuki comes to life in the final 15 minutes and treats the viewer to some of the visual madness that is about to get him fired from Nikkatsu. Truly hints at the greatness to come.

Original Japanese release.

T.O.

WOMAN IN THE DUNES (aka SUNA NO ONNA) (c. 1965) - Hiroshi Teshigahara's masterwork. Beautiful black and white image that doesn't suffer from the quotes US distributors were so fond of putting on foreign film posters of the '60s. I suspect they thought they needed to reassure the sophistos who were the audience for these films that it was worthy of their attention. Not to worry, "WitD" is classic Japanese cinema for a reason.

Original US release one sheet..

T.O.

BLOW UP (1966) - Michelangelo Antonioni's murder mystery set against the backdrop of swinging '60s London has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to great posters. Practically every country has a really fine image used for their campaigns. Yet, of all of them, this German 2 sheet is my favorite. The appeal is obvious.

Linen backed for sheer convenience.

T.O.

FAHRENHEIT 451 (1966) - Catching the science fiction bug, Francois Truffaut steps up to the plate with his adaptation of Ray Bradbury's hopefully-not-too-prophetic tale of firemen gone bad. Working with a large budget for once, Truffaut was still able to utilize some of the tricks the nouvelle vague filmmakers were adding to the cinematic repertoire without totally succumbing to studio hackery.

This classic image is the original release French grande.

SOLD

MADE IN USA (1966) - Original French release grande, on linen.

Godard teams up with '60s icon Marianne Faithfull reciting her "As Tears Go By" hit, and wife Anna Karina for the film that, due to underlying rights issues, was not available for screening in the US until 2009. Outrageous graphics, fitting for the op-art world in which it was created, make this an extremely appealing poster.

T.O.

MASCULIN FEMININ (aka MASCULINE-FEMININE) (1966) - Another product of it's time, and an important nouvelle vague work by master Jean-Luc Godard, "MF" is a study of male/female/Marxist relationships at the height of that sort of nonsense in '60s Paris.

What a great poster though. Original release French grande, on linen.

T.O.

SMELL OF HONEY, A SWALLOW OF BRINE, A (1966) - Best. Title. Ever.

David Friedman creates a fantastic poster for this mid-'60s sleaze classic. If you were walking around Times Square back in the day, there's a good chance you would have seen this poster. Totally inappropriate, totally fantastic.

This is the original release US one sheet, and is signed by Dave Friedman to (allegedly) Mike [Vraney] of Something Weird Video. The signature appears to be completely authentic. A very cool relic of a bygone era.

T.O.

TOKYO DRIFTER (aka TOKYO NAGAREMONO) (1966) - Nearing the end of his run at Nikkatsu, and bitterly feuding with it's management, legendary director Seijun Suzuki creates one of his two masterpieces of the '60s. Following a hitman who is being hunted himself, the film is one of the most visually surreal movies ever put on celluloid. Brilliant art direction, combined with Suzuki's take-no-prisoners direction make for a classic that is not to be missed.

Original Japanese release, possibly a "countryside" poster. Extremely rare.

T.O.

BELLE DE JOUR (1967) - Continuing his string of European masterworks, Luis Buñuel teams up with blonde beauty, Catherine Deneuve to tell the tale of a bored housewife who takes up prostitution to spice things up. Mon dieu!

Original release French petite.

T.O.

BRANDED TO KILL (aka KOROSHI NO RAKUIN) (1967) - While the honchos at Nikkatsu were trying to get maniac director Seijun Suzuki to tone things down, Suzuki took the opposite tack and created his indisputable masterpiece. Off-the-wall improvisation, sublime art direction, and over-the-top cinematography guarantee "BtK"'s place in the history of gonzo cinema. Unfortunately, Nikkatsu had had enough, and Suzuki was summarily fired and blacklisted. To our extreme loss, he didn't make another film for almost 10 years.

This original release Japanese poster nicely captures a hint of the nuttiness that viewers could expect.

T.O.

HEROIN (aka HEROINA) (c. 1968) - What can you say about this besides "wow!"? Needles, nekkidity, and neurosis all combine to make one of the high points (ahem...) of international druggie posters.

Original Polish release.

T.O.

BLONDE ON A BUM TRIP (1968) - Less about the "pot-holes" of New York, and more about the "bad trips," "Blonde on a Bum Trip" is one of the cross-over films that transitioned from the earlier "roughies" to the more popular drug films that emerged out of the summer of love. Telling the tale of a wayward chemist who gets involved with NYC acid freaks, it goes without saying that she has a bad go of it.

Bummer for her, groovy for us, as we are left with this fantastic poster.

Original release US one sheet.

T.O.

PLANET OF THE APES (aka PLANETE DES SINGES, LA) (1968) - Far superior to the tepid artwork used in the US campaign, Jean Mascii created what has got to be THE "PotA" poster for the ages. One of the most important science fiction films of the decade, Rod Serling's script and Franklin Schaffner's direction set the stage for 4 more, increasingly diminishing, sequels. Features the perfect image of Charlton Heston with those danged dirty apes.

Original French release grande, on linen.

SOLD

2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968) - Stanley Kubrick's undisputed masterpiece that set the standard for any film that was to follow.

Released in both Cinerama and SuperPanavision versions, this is the original release 30x40", a fairly unusual format to survive.

T.O.
