    Description

    Jaws (Universal, 1975). Poster (30" X 40") Roger Kastel Artwork.
    Peter Benchley's best-selling novel served as the basis for director Steven Spielberg's terrifying motion picture about a great white shark terrorizing an island resort town in New England. This Oscar-winning thriller, starring Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, and Richard Dreyfuss, took such a big bite out of the box office that it was followed by three sequels. The iconic image of Bruce the shark and Susan Backlinie by artist Roger Kastel is one of the most famous images of any film of the last thirty years, making this poster a collector favorite. Touchup to a few creases, some of the credit area and title lettering, parts of the background, and the swimmer. The borders have been airbrushed, and the poster also shows some mild color fading. Artwork by Roger Kastel. From the Jimmy Sandefur Collection. Fine+ on Linen.
