    Description

    Mean Streets (Warner Brothers, 1973). British Quad (30" X 40").
    This hard-hitting crime drama of the 1970s is considered by many to be one of the best films made by master director Martin Scorsese. It was the first in a long run of collaborations between De Niro and Scorsese. The film also launched the career of Harvey Keitel. This fabulous and rare British poster features the artwork of Peter Strausfeld. Strausfeld was an emigré artist who was interned during the war along with Academy Cinema director George Hoellering. After the war, Hoellering asked Strausfeld to produce some posters for the cinema which he did in wood and lino-cuts until his death in 1980. Of all of the posters done for the Academy Cinema in Oxford Street, London, this is one of the rarest and in greatest demand! In spectacular condition, this has no condition issues to note. Very Fine+ on Linen.
