    Streets of Fire


    “Tonight is what it means to be young…”

    After making his buddy cop hit “48 Hours” Walter Hill directed a film that was inspired by the movies he grew up on. It was a wild homage filled with the kinds of images and themes he loved most about those movies such as: “custom cars, kissing in the rain, neon, trains in the night, high-speed pursuit, rumbles, rock stars, motorcycles, jokes in tough situations, leather jackets and questions of honor.” What Hill created was “Streets of Fire” (1984) a 1980’s meets retro 1950’s musical-action-crime-comedy B-movie epic. The film stars Michael Pare as Tom Cody an ex-soldier who returns to his home to rescue his ex-girlfriend, a singer named Ellen Aim (Diane Lane) from the clutches of evil biker gang leader Raven Shaddock (Willem Dafoe). The music (heavily influenced by Meatloaf’s guru Jim Steinman) featured in the film also reflected the odd 1950’s meets the 1980’s backdrop with its diverse rockabilly, doo-wop, blues and New Wave sounds…Even though “Streets of Fire” didn’t do well when it was released, over the years it has developed a cult following because of its unique qualities. The colourful eye catching poster art by Riehm for the film reflects the furiously stylised aesthetic that was used to tell the rock n’ roll  fable of love ! Originally rolled (as issued) this beautiful unrestored 1984 US one sheet film poster presents superbly and represents a fine piece of original very collectable movie / music memorabilia…“A Rock ‘n’ Roll Fable !”

    Trivia: The car that Cody (Michael Pare) drives in the movie is a 1951 Mercury that was chopped, channelled, nosed, and decked.

    The Terminator


    “In the Year of Darkness, 2029, the rulers of this planet devised the ultimate plan. They would reshape the Future by changing the Past. The plan required something that felt no pity. No pain. No fear. Something unstoppable. They created THE TERMINATOR”

    Extremely rare, “The Terminator” original Czech Flyer (horizontal) movie poster from first year of release in Czechoslovakia 1990. Featuring Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger wielding his laser sighted handgun from the famous ‘Tech Noir’ disco scene. Originally flat/unfolded this displays to excellent effect and would make for a fantastic addition to any collection or as a one-off display piece. Truly impressive eye catching design and a fine piece of country unique artwork that represents highly collectible movie poster memorabilia for one of cinema’s greatest movies of all time and a pop culture phenomenon that blasted then new comer’s Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s career into orbit and made James Cameron a Hollywood name.

  • Titanic Movie Poster



    “Nothing On Earth Could Come Between Them.”

    “Titanic” plays almost like a historical biography and is like a work of art, a true epic. Like most history novels, we know the ending, but it doesn’t take away from the wonderful treats that can be found in this picture. Certain aspects of this film were Academy Award material including costuming, sound, cintematography, and editing and it’s one of these iconic cinematic scenes – Rose (Winslet) & Jack (DiCaprio) ‘flying’ at the bow of the Titanic that features in this original one-sheet created for the 25th Anniversary release in 2023 when it screened in a limited number of cinemas for Valentine’s weekend only. Designed by Gravillis, this style is particularly scarce. Investment grade quality for an example that was originally rolled and displays superbly, thanks not only to the imagery but the hi-gloss finish – it really is an impressive film poster that represents a great piece of cinematic movie memorabilia from the movie that was the first gross over a billion dollars at the box-office.

    Trivia: The scenes set in 1912, i.e. the whole movie except the present-day scenes and the opening and ending credits, have a total length of two hours and forty minutes, the exact time it took for Titanic to sink. Also, the collision with the iceberg reportedly lasted 37 seconds, which is how long the collision scene is in the movie.
