    American Gigolo


    “His business is pleasure !”

    After the huge success in 1982 for the Oscar winning “An Officer and a Gentleman”, Richard Gere was a global superstar and the most bankable male actor at the box office. Paramount Pictures were quick to exploit his success and re-released (even though it was only originally released in 1980) Paul Schrader’s “American Gigolo” with the knowing tagline… “In American Gigolo Richard Gere is neither an Officer nor a Gentleman” which was adapted to run alongside the familiar imagery of the original 1980 UK quad film poster. Rare in this style, it is actually a very effective design. Originally folded (as issued) this unrestored example presents and displays very well and represents a highly desirable piece of original movie memorabilia for one of the most stylish films of the 80’s.

    TRIVIA…This movie represented the Hollywood breakthrough of leading clothes designer GIORGIO ARMANI who provided the stylish clothes for Richard Gere’s well dressed male escort.

    “When Smokey Sings” the hit 1987 song by ABC was inspired by the scene in the movie where Richard Gere is seen meticulously choosing what clothes to wear out.

    Apocalypse Now


    “You don’t talk to Colonel Kurtz…You listen to him”

    A personal favourite and quite simply a stunning looking film poster for Francis Ford Coppola’s multi award winning Vietnam war epic “Apocalypse Now”. There is no doubting the influence and impact of Coppola’s 1979 masterpiece with any paper hugely desirable and the Japanese B2 film poster offered here is no exception. This version features a design unique to Japan which utilises the iconic ‘helicopters in the sunset’ artwork created by Bob Peak for the US & British posters with two incredible photo images of Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando) & assassin Benjamin Willard (Martin Sheen) dominating the foreground. A poster with truly memorable imagery for Coppola’s voyage into the ‘Heart of Darkness’. Originally rolled (as issued) with amazing dark colour tones this totally unrestored example presents and displays to very good effect with only minimal handling wear that represents a beautiful piece of original movie memorabilia from one of the finest film’s ever made…“Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that”
