    Janis (Universal, 1974). Premiere One Sheet (27" X 41").
    If you weren't lucky enough to be at the Santa Clara Fairgrounds in May of 1968 at The Northern California Folk-Rock Festival watching The Doors, Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin and many others, take heart. Now you can be, thanks to the Leica lens of music's master photographer, Jim Marshall. He caught Janis in a clear example of what all great photographers call "the decisive moment". Offered here is a very, very rare, full-bleed poster produced for the film premiere at the San Francisco film festival in October 1974, of the documentary by Howard Alk exploring the life and music of the great Janis Joplin. Universal later released the theatrical one sheet with full borders in 1975, which is a much more common. This is a magnificently clean copy with only slight edge wear. Rolled, Near Mint.
