DescriptionA Clockwork Orange (Warner Brothers, 1971). One Sheet (27" X 41").
The original poster with the Philip Castle artwork was used for the original X-rated release in all the major markets, beginning with the 4-city premiere engagements in NY, LA, San Francisco and Toronto in December, 1971. The film in its X-rated version continued playing for the next six months as it was released in all key North American cities, almost always establishing house records.
When CLOCKWORK was marginally altered to achieve an R-rating, Kubrick wanted to call attention to the rating with another image, as the Castle artwork had already become iconic and the film would now be available for viewing by a wider audience.
He liked this design by David Pelham of the Canadian paperback edition of the Anthony Burgess novel and had it adapted as the new poster for an R-announcement release. It was used for a short time before the original Castle image was reinstituted. This poster had a limited press run and as it was directly tied to the American rating, it was only seen in North America, whereas the Castle design was used throughout the world. It is therefore the rarest of official Clockwork Orange posters. This copy is probably the most pristine to have ever been offered, as it was one of the few to come directly from the printer to the Warner Brothers marketing offices at the Burbank studios. Rolled, Very Fine/Near Mint.
