    Description

    Thunder Road (United Artists, 1958). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Crime. Starring Robert Mitchum, Gene Barry, and Jacques Aubuchon. Large chunks out of the top border, pin holes with some minor tearing, cross point and fold line separations, staple holes, Canadian censor stamp, vertical crease in the top left corner, and some smudging in the lower left corner. One of the true "must have's" for any Mitchum/car fan. The '57 Ford used in the crash scene on the poster was specially built to withstand the force of impact when it was driven in between the two revenuer cars, also pictured. The front fenders were made of cast steel and the body and frame were heavily reinforced. The weight of the car was such that special solid sponge rubber tires had to be fabricated and used. No tire of the day could support the weight and speed the car had to attain and still look like normal car tires. Good-.
