DescriptionA Fistful of Dollars & Other Lot (United Artists, 1967). Very Fine- on Linen. One Sheets (2) (27" X 41") & Poster (30" X 40") Fred Otnes Artwork.
Sergio Leone's "Man With No Name" trilogy forever changed the big-screen Western. While it was typically easy to tell the good guys from the bad guys in older American Westerns, the Italian Western (or, Spaghetti Western) often focused on harsh violence perpetrated by charismatic anti-heroes. Starting with A Fistful of Dollars, an unauthorized remake of Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo, Clint Eastwood's nameless gunslinger quickly became one of film's most iconic anti-heroes. Leone's visual style and Eastwood's signature look are beautiful represented on this trio of posters that encompass the entire trilogy that influenced countless films that would follow. Included in this lot along with the one sheet for A Fistful of Dollars is a one sheet for For a Few Dollars More (United Artists, 1967) and a poster for The Good, The Bad and the Ugly (United Artists, 1968). A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More are both backed on linen, and they have a bit of restoration addressing slight fold wear, pinholes, minute tears, and minor creases. A few of the issues are still visible on For a Few Dollars More including faint smudges and some of the pinholes. The poster for The Good, The Bad and the Ugly is not backed, nor does it have any restoration. The Good, The Bad and the Ugly shows light toning, creasing, noticeable tears, edge wear, smudges, mild stains, and a chip in the top border. There is a small rating snipe in the background of The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, and on the verso of the poster is some cellophane tape. David Blossom provided the artwork for The Good, The Bad and the Ugly as well as For a Few Dollars More.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
