  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Movie Poster

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    £195.00

    “If adventure has a name…it must be Indiana Jones.”

    Darker and more serious in tone and content than its predecessor. Spiros Angelikas’ cleverly designed ‘Trust Him’ taglined poster certainly reinforces that aspect for Steven Spielberg’s 1984 prequel / sequel “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”. This original country of origin Advance teaser US one-sheet movie poster highlights the titular archaeologist hero bathed in a red (blood red ?) light surrounded by a dark black embossed patterned border. Originally rolled, as issued to the cinema this superb example displays to excellent effect being presented in totally unrestored high grade condition. Often seen as the ‘weakest’ of the franchise (not so in my book) this is considerably rarer than posters from the other films and is genuinely hard to find in this format and represents a fantastic piece of scarce original movie memorabilia for an incredibly popular and well loved series of films.

    Trivia: While filming the whipping scene, the crew played a practical joke on Harrison Ford. While he was chained to a large stone, Barbra Streisand appeared, dressed in a leather dominatrix outfit. She proceeded to whip him, saying “That’s for Hanover Street (1979), the worst movie I ever saw.” She continued whipping him for Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977), and making all of that money. Carrie Fisher then threw herself in front of Ford to protect him, and Irvin Kershner chided director Steven Spielberg. “Is this how you run your movies ?” This entire sequence was filmed.

    Streets of Fire

    £125.00

    “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 Company of Wolves

    £75.00

    “The desire…the fantasy…the nightmare…Where fairy stories meet horror stories”

    An extraordinary and surreal masterpiece from Neil Jordan, “The Company of Wolves” is an allegory that examines the journey from innocence to adulthood in an adult re-telling of the much loved fairytale “Little Red Riding Hood”. Certainly a strange story; the mix of sexual symbolism, poetic beauty and gory horror moments seems a bit forced at times – but when it does work it’s utterly fascinating and you can see it has become such a cult film of the genre and well respected by fans of both horror and quality film making. Offered here is a rare 1984 first release country of origin UK quad film poster for this British film featuring an intricate design by Red Ranch with beautiful  detailed border artwork by Alan Lee with the storybook illustration attributed to Andy Seymour. An extremely desirable movie poster from a ‘golden age’ of pre-CGI physical movie special effects and a period of superior werewolf inspired films that is presented in excellent original unrestored folded (as issued) condition and represents a fine example of rare and collectable original British horror movie memorabilia.
