    BEST: George Best All by Himself


    “He was football’s first rock and roll star – a handsome, charismatic Belfast boy who could thrill and excite the crowds with every turn of the ball. But George Best was also the lead in his own Shakespearean tragedy, a flawed genius, brought down by drink, temptation and depression”

    Due to a very limited cinematic release of this ‘art-house’ independent movie this poster is a truly scarce item of sports memorabilia, an original 2016 UK Quad movie poster for Daniel Gordon’s sports biopic “BEST: George Best All By Himself”. A impressive looking poster, especially if you are a George Best fan. Halfway between a sports documentary and a social statement on the pitfalls of fame and celebrity culture. Originally rolled (as issued) this superb example displays and presents to excellent effect featuring a poignant close up colour photograph of the titular Best in the famous red jersey of Manchester United, the team he made his name with. A fine piece of original memorabilia that will appeal to the sports or movie poster collector for one of the most lauded, famous and recognised sportsmen on the planet….In 1969 I gave up women and alcohol – it was the worst 20 minutes of my life.”
