  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade Movie Poster

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    £175.00

    “Have the adventure of your life keeping up with the Joneses”

    A return to fun and adventure for Steven Spielberg’s 1989 sequel “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”. This original advance ‘He’s back in an all new adventure. Memorial Day 1989’ US one-sheet movie poster features the artwork of Drew Struzan, who has perfectly captured the likenesses of the lead character – Indiana Jones as played by Harrison Ford. Originally rolled, as issued to the cinema this superb example displays to fine effect being presented in totally unrestored condition and represents a fantastic piece of original movie memorabilia for an incredibly popular and well loved series of films.

    Trivia: Sir Sean Connery was always Steven Spielberg‘s first choice to play Indiana Jones’ father, as an inside joke to say that James Bond is the father of Indiana Jones. If that had failed, Gregory Peck and Jon Pertwee were back-up choices for the role. Spielberg had always wanted to do a Bond movie, but did Indiana Jones as a James Bond-type character. In keeping with the James Bond theme, the movie has many Bond movie co-stars: John Rhys-Davies, Alison Doody, Julian Glover, Stefan Kalipha, Pat Roach, Eugene Lipinski, Michael Byrne, and Vernon Dobtcheff.

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    £95.00

    “Indiana Jones, this is one night you’ll never forget. This is the night I slipped right through your fingers. Sleep tight and pleasant dreams. I could’ve been your greatest adventure”

    Darker and more serious in tone and content than its pedecessor, Czech illustrator Milan Pecak’s beautifully imagined artwork certainly reinforces that trait for Steven Spielberg’s 1984 “Raiders” sequel “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom“. This original Czechoslovakian cinematic offering highlights our fedora wearing, bull-whip wielding hero, Indiana Jones as a beacon of light surrounded by the darkness of a glowering red-eyed gigantic skull. From first year of Czech release the originally rolled (as issued), unrestored example offered here has minimal handling and displays & presents to excellent effect with vibrant unfaded colours. It represents a fantastic item of eye-pleasing collectable movie memorabilia with a twist and an interesting alternative to the more conventional British or American posters for the title.

    Trivia: Mola Ram’s chantings of “Maaro maaro sooar ko, chamdi nocho pee lo khoon” literally translated from Hindi is “Kill, Kill the pig, flay his skin, drink his blood”. This is similar to the chant from William Golding’s “Lord of the Flies”.

  • 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.

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    £395.00

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

    Arguably the most sought after design for “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”. This Style B, US one-sheet one-sheet displays the unmistakable painted artwork of Drew Struzan which features a montage of just about all the best elements from this film; from the heart wrenching evil villain Mola Ram, the comic relief character Short Round and the episode’s love interest – Willie Scott. And of course taking centre stage is Harrison Ford as the titular Indiana Jones – all beautifully illustrated by Struzan. It’s hardly a wonder why this poster is so desirable; it represents the best parts of this all-action series. Originally rolled, as issued to the cinema this superb example displays to excellent effect being presented in totally unrestored high grade condition with only light handling wear. 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 very scarce and represents a fantastic piece of scarce country of origin original movie memorabilia for an incredibly popular and well loved series of films.
