    Description

    Sympathy for the Devil (New Line, 1970). Full-Bleed Premiere Poster (34.25" X 47"). Rock and Roll.
    Jean-Luc Godard set off to London in the late 1960s to make a film about abortion, but ended up making a documentary with the Rolling Stones instead, who were on record as being "big fans" of his work. The silkscreened poster offered here is for the April, 1970 American premiere of producer Iain Quarrier's cut of the film, an edited version that significantly altered Godard's vision of the picture. The movie had no distributor in the United States, but a theater owner in Ann Arbor wanted to exhibit the film. With no promotional materials available for the picture, the exhibitor, who had some experience in poster production, decided to create his own poster for the movie. Originally, a press run of around 100 copies of the silkscreen were produced, but today only a few have survived. An unrestored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as slight edge wear, light creases, thin surface scuffs, or mild tears. Please see full-color, enlargeable image above for more details. Rolled, Very Fine.
