    Description

    Yellow Submarine (United Artists, 1968). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27.25" X 41"). Heinz Edelmann Artwork.
    After two feature films and a disappointing TV special, the Beatles - John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr - were less than enthusiastic about participating in another movie, but saw this animated feature as a relatively painless way to fulfill their contractual obligations. When the Fab Four saw a rough cut of this charming animated fable, however, they were so impressed that they agreed to film a live action sequence for the film's end. Reminiscent of the psychedelic stylings of 1960s icon Peter Max, the movie tells the story of the Beatles' quest to free the peaceful Pepperland from the influence of the evil Blue Meanies. Of course, like the Liverpudlian Lad's previous films, this was primarily a showcase for their music, including such hit songs as "All You Need is Love," "Eleanor Rigby," "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," "When I'm Sixty-Four," and the title track. This delightful one sheet for the film has had touchup applied to the folds, as well as along the edges. The poster shows slight unaddressed color fading. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
