Description

    Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song (Cinemation Industries, 1971). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Although not as well known today as such pictures as Shaft (1971), Superfly (1972), or Blacula (1972), this movie holds an important place in cinema history as the very first Blaxploitation film, a genre that would largely dominate motion picture screens for much of the early 1970s. Privately financed by actor/writer/director Melvin van Peebles - no Hollywood studio was interested in backing a picture with an all-black cast - this film became the top-grossing independent movie of 1972, earning $15 million, and starting a trend that would revolutionize the motion picture industry. The poster offered here has fold wear with crossfold separation, and a corner bend in the top right, but is otherwise extremely clean and attractive. If historically significant posters are your thing, take a close look at this rare gem. Fine/Very Fine.
