“Motorcycle sport and the men who ride”
One of the more unusual and certainly an uncommon Steve McQueen movie posters. Truly dynamic photographic action imagery by John Bechtold for Bruce Brown’s 1971 motorcycle sports documentary “On Any Sunday”. Eye-catching and memorable the ‘blurred’ motorcycle imagery perfectly evacuates the speed speed and excitement of the race. Very scarce and becoming hard to find due to the Film’s very limited release and low advertising budget in its day. Now an iconic and much admired motor sport movie showing just why Steve McQueen was the true King of Cool and equally as talented, whether on two and four wheels. Presented rolled (as issued), it displays to very good effect with only minimal handling wear and represents a fantastic piece of McQueen, Motorcycle and cinematic movie memorabilia.
Trivia: The film was financed by Steve McQueen who also used his influence to allow filming at Camp Pendleton, (a marine base in California), when permission was originally denied to Bruce Brown.…more detail

“The curious title refers to the last time the district of Civetta won the Palio in 1979. Il Palio is distinctive because the jockeys do not represent the 17 districts of the Siennese region – the horses do. This film trains its eye on the Civetta community, desperate for a win in the race after a drought of over 20 years”
John Appel’s excellent and entertaining docu-drama based upon the annual horserace called the ‘Palio’ held in the city’s center piazza (Piazza del Campo) in Siena, Italy. A very limited cinema release in ‘art-house’ & ‘independent’ theatres meant the posters for this enjoyable film are in extremely short supply, which is a shame as the design and production quality is of a very high standard. The imagery (and it’s not often I speak positively about a single image photographic film poster) is excellent, very colourful with genuine warmth and passion; the spirit of the ‘palio’ is truly embodied in it. The original UK quad film poster offered here is from first year of release 2004 and as it was originally rolled (as issued) it looks and presents to very good effect…A very rare find, this scarce, exceptional looking piece represents very collectable & desirable movie memorabilia.…more detail
