    Description

    The Acid Eaters (FPS Ventures, 1968). One Sheet (28" X 41.5"). Exploitation icon David Friedman, producer of such cult classics as "Two Thousand Maniacs," "Ilsa She-Wolf of the SS," and "Blood Feast," also produced this time-capsuled drug film with an amazing psychedelic one sheet to match. Friedman, no stranger to pretty girls, even insisted on handling the cinematography under the name of "Milo Gore." A typical over-the-top Friedman production, his poster brazenly ballyhoos this as "The first Underground Hollywood Movie!" Certainly atypical of even "adult" film titles, this poster breezily displays nudity in both artwork and photograph form. This would dictate that the poster could only be used in certain venues, as nudity was not allowed on posters displayed in shopping mall theatres, for example, leading Friedman to coin the term "Mall-soleum," referring to multiplex cinemas. A very scarce example of the "free love" era, in a great grade, with wonderfully bright "day-glo" coloring. Professionally linen-backed, with restoration work on only the soft fold lines, and minor pinholes. Very Fine/Near Mint on Linen.
